No, there's no checking of the vocabulary-specific rules. When it comes to  
dates, those are expressed using <time>, so you can validate those by  
simply using an HTML validator. The general constraints of microdata can  
also be checked by an HTML validator, but I don't know how far along  
validator.nu is in its support yet.
