We cannot provide equivalent markup for itempropvalue unless we know how  
itempropvalue is intended to work:

1. When itempropvalue appears on an URL property elements [1], is it (1)  
ignored (2) resolved as a URL or (3) a plain text property?

2. When itempropvalue appears together with itemscope, is it (1) ignored  
or (2) a plain text property?
