A possible fix.

This patch fixes the accidental inclusion of most of the HTML5+Microdata spec in the HTML5 spec, but it does so in a way that I believe would negatively affect the ability to generate the HTML5+Microdata spec from our common source document.

Mike, is there a better way to fix this issue, one that won't break generation of HTML5+Microdata?
