It would probably be useful if you provide a concrete descriptive example showing how DATA element resolve this situation elegant and nonconfusing way. Thanks.

It's not truth for two (related to CSS-like syntax) of four of paragraphs in my previous respose:

[A] It's questionable how common in real world are usecases where different (space-separated) microdata properties share same value.

[B] To be clear just in case: @itemprop in my CSS-like-syntax proposal is not intended to store more than one name/value pair.
