I'd suggest removing the entire vocabulary-specific section altogether. As mentioned in the same page, microdata is aiming to solve a different problem than microformats, so it's misleading to suggest specific vocabularies are actually alternatives to specific microformats by talking about them vis-a-vis microformats.
Put another way, that section violates DRY. Because microdata is aiming to solve a different problem, *no* microdata vocabulary could possibly be recommended in place of a specific microformat, so it's redundant to go into the ways in which a specific microdata vocabulary goes against microformat principles, principles it's not even attempting to follow.
