Review request - microdata


The microdata spec is now a First Public Working Draft [1] - although 
the technology has been around the whole decade, and is widely deployed 
for search engines... so we expect it to be fairly stable in terms of 
technology, fixing it to reflect reality rather than re-designing it, 
where possible.

I added a basic Internationalisation and Localisation section [2] in the 
editor's draft, based on what came to the top of my head. going through 
the "Security and Privacy" questionnaire I found first [3]. I have also 
been working through the questions from the wiki [4], and I suspect a 
little will change, but probably not a lot. There is issue 13 for this 
[5] - currently closed, but if someone thinks it needs reopening please 
say so. In any event, I will make sure any PR references the issue to 
make sure it is recorded in that issue.

Could we please review the spec? I will attend the next meeting to help 
talk people through it, but I hope people have a quick look already. It 
is very similar to RDFa Lite - there are some attributes you can add to 
HTML to make data more unambiguously machine-parseable, and I *doubt* 
there are many issues. Which is why I am asking others to think through 
it with a hypercritical eye…
