As far as applications that consume content that uses Microdata and that
actually do something useful with it, I don't think there are any
well-known ones other than schema.org
I know Drupal has some specific support for Microdata but it's not clear to
me that enables anything more than just producing document with Microdata
attributes included (rather than consuming that Microdata content and doing
something special with it).
> What was the original intent of the API? Did anyone use it?
The original intent was just to provide a standard way for the Web platform
to expose the Microdata content of Web documents to scripts.
