This feedback is filed as a personal comment and is not intended to be any sort
of official feedback from any standards working group.

The Drupal content management platform has a use case for RDFa where they want
to express the portion of a page that is the actual post content, including all
HTML markup. The Microdata spec currently cannot do this, please specify a
mechanism that allows an author to easily express an HTML snippet. 

The end-result must allow for at least the following to be expressed without
resorting to using HTML entities or other hacks:

"<h1><s>Microdata</s> HTML Literal Test</h1><p>This is a test.</p>"
