Removing a element with semantics and replacing it with what basically is a
clone of the span element is a step in the wrong direction. 

A way to provide machine readable version of the data is already handled by
RDFa without any new elements. Why not try to work together with them to try to
find a generic mechanism to do this that works for both formats?

In addtion to that, schema.org examples have no business in the W3C spec
because microdata is not part of HTML5 ( just like RDFa isn't part of the spec
).
