It says that only elements with an itemprop="" are considered (where "itemprop"
is a hyperlink to the definition of the HTML attribute), and only HTML elements
can have it. This is the same as how when the spec refers to elements with the
contenteditable="" attribute it is only referring to HTML elements.

There's no way I can sanely make this explicit all over the spec. It would make
it completely unreadable. Almost every mention of an HTML-specific global
attribute (tabindex, hidden, title, dir, dropzone...) would need to be
qualified as only applying to HTML.

I've added a section that calls this out, and then added another section
calling it out again for microdata specifically. Hopefully that's sufficient?
