I'm a little wary of changing our set of components because it seems  
to break things when we do it. The alternatives I thought of:

- Add keywords "Microdata" and "2DContext"; this would require bug  
reporters to be aware, and would require volunteers to review existing  
open bugs.
- Adopt an informal convention to prefix the titles of bugs in these  
areas with "[microdata]" or "[2d context]" as appropriate.

The title convention is probably less work for bug reporters, but  
there's still a potential for mistakes.

I think we do need some way to track these bugs separately if we want  
to consider the possibility that these three drafts might go to Last  
Call or Candidate Rec at different times.
