Thanks. Fixed.

Either this restriction should be removed (requiring only @itemscope), or we’ll need to remove that mechanism from a future Microdata to RDF update. In the absence of either @itemid or @itemtype, a Microdata to RDF processor will generate triples using blank node identifiers. Either such a processor should not ever generate triples without seeing an @itemtype, or @itemid should be allowed without @itemtype.
Yes, thank you for raising this as issue #57 - 
https://github.com/w3c/microdata/issues/57

cheers

> In any case, the Microdata to RDF spec does make use of the previous Microdata DOM API, and will need an update to provide a different mechanism for getting the values of an element or attribute. It may be useful to coordinate a Third Edition of Microdata to RDF with this publication so that they are consistent.
