Good start!

I encourage you to incorporate some of the high-level HTML5+Microdata 
extensions for Chrome into your curation effort. Net effect, you can see 
a translation of your entity relationship represented in your microdata 
alongside your actual HTML document [1][2][3].

Back to your fundamental question i.e., is this all correct? From my 
vantage point, its correct syntactically (I think), but in regards to 
the meaning of what you are trying to express (i.e., nature of the 
entity relationship types as represented) its not so easy to say "right" 
or "wrong" .
