I think Microdata to RDF conversion should not generate an XML literal
in this case, because XML literals are not part of the Microdata data
model and conversion to RDF shouldn't give meaning to syntactic
artifacts that don't have meaning in Microdata.

It would be bad to have Microdata-looking markup mean different things
depending on whether the consumer has RDF-based internals or not.
