No, the thing being uniquely identified by @itemid is not the Microdata item,
but rather whatever the Microdata item's properties are talking about.  For
example, the @itemid may be pointing to an isbn: url, which uniquely identifies
a particular edition of a book.  

It is perfectly fine to have multiple Microdata items with the same @itemid on
a single page - they're just each defining properties for the same unique item.
