thanks for this really useful work -

My only comment is a little sadness that you seem to privilege  
microdata over RDFa etc... You say that microdata is the most  
frequently used but, IMHO, you contribute to that situation  by making  
it easy for folks to use microdata but don't show how to use RDFa. Of  
course you do refer to it etc but I wonder if in an explanation of  
schema.org that is sure to become very popular, it'd be good to  
include both approaches?
