There should probably be some mention of the Microdata specification being “dead”. It was “rippped” out of the HTML5.0 spec, and was also removed from WebKit and Blink. Currently, it is awaiting an active community (and especially an editor) if it wants to make it into HTML5.1 in 2016, otherwise it is dead in the water. (I suppose the lack of update in this article is indicative of its lack of community.) Synetech (talk) 19:52, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

It's… not entirely dead. It remains in the WHATWG spec, actively edited, though the DOM API is gone due to lack of interest from implementors, as it has got a number of large-scale deployments — plenty of Google tools use it, including things as notable as Search.
