It may be relevant to note that microdata is no longer part of the HTML5 
core [1] .
microdata does however exist as a separate specification [2] but is just 
"attributes" and as far as I know, microdata vCard and vEvent no longer 
exists as part of the microdata specification do they?.
I wouldnt really be surprised to see microdata disappear all 
together(but that's just my thought)

Best wishes
