Dear Dan, all:

As far as I know, the <time> element is being dropped from the HTML5 Microdata spec, but there has been some debate on this [2].

I saw that many examples on the schema.org pages have been updated to use <meta> and <data> instead, but there are still examples with <time>.

Giving the ongoing discussion - what is Google's position on using <time> in schema.org markup in Microdata syntax? Should it be all migrated to meta/data or is this irrelevant for you?

If you want to drop <time>, then please update all schema.org documentation accordingly, e.g.


Thanks for a clarification. 

I assume that the uncertainty about this part of Microdata modeling creates a lot of friction for developers willing to add schema.org to their sites.
