Ultimately, we are going to end up with the obvious question: why isn't 
html+microdata being given the same standing as (x)html+rdfa? There is a 
mime type claims war raging re. who really owns: text/html. You know 
that html+microdata is the natural representation for: text/html. Thus, 
can we really save implementer the hassle of figuring all of this out.

We shouldn't force syntax on anyone. There are many ways to represent 
EAV/SPO based directed graphs. If we are going to suggest anything, lets 
veer away from covert (x)html+rdfa vs html5+microdata wars re. mime 
type: text/html. It ultimately just infuriates implementers.
