Why is it not conceivably reusable outside of HTML?

RDFa was originally conceived to work inside XHTML, but SVG 1.2 Tiny now
includes its attributes, as does the most recent version of
OpenDocument, and Yahoo's DataRSS format (based on Atom).

If Microdata is especially useful, then it's certainly possible to
conceive of it similarly being used within other standards.
