A validator should complain for:

   itemtype="http://example.com/unknown/type"

...in the same way that an XML vocabulary conformance checker would complain
for an application/xml file that contains an unknown namespace.

That is, it should say "I'm sorry, I don't know how to validate this as I do
not know that vocabulary".

Given that, the question asked in comment 5 is moot.


But I can certainly add a note saying that what a "vocabulary" is is defined by
the document that defines a vocabulary, and thus that whether two types use the
same vocabulary is defined by that vocabulary's spec, if it's not obvious. (It
seems kind of obvious to me.)
