Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale:

The conclusion was in:
   http://lists.whatwg.org/htdig.cgi/whatwg-whatwg.org/2011-June/032260.html

This is unnecessary, because if you want to indicate that an element has
multiple categories, you just need to define a property whose value is those
categories.

The itemtype="" attribute doesn't specify an item's categories, it gives the
item's vocabulary (its type, in programming terms).

If you're trying to use multiple vocabularies with one item, this isn't
possible because there'd be no way to disambiguate terms without vocabulary
knowledge. Don't do that.
