To make it easier to convert microdata to RDFa and vice versa, <link> and
<meta> elements should be permitted within flow content and phrasing content
when they have RDFa attributes.

I'd suggest using wording in HTML+RDFa 1.1 similar to that used within Section
4.1 (Content models) of the current HTML Microdata Editors Draft [2] which

  If the itemprop attribute is present on link or meta, they are flow 
  content and phrasing content. The link and meta elements may be used 
  where phrasing content is expected if the itemprop attribute is present.

This kind of wording might fit nicely within Section 4 (Extensions to the HTML5
Syntax) [3] of the current HTML+RDFa 1.1 Editors Draft.

The RDFWA WG supports this change [1].
