I was unaware of the Microdata spec. Now that I have seen it, I think it offers a lot of power and flexibility. I think it should adequately cover the use case I was thinking of.
I'm in favor of adding a non-normative note to the section of the HTML5 spec that discusses <cite> that demonstrates how Microdata or RDFa could be used for this purpose. There will likely be other people like me who read the <cite> section of the spec and think "What? I can't actually make the citation point to something?"

I'm not opposed to adding @cite to <cite> but note that when you are
identifying a resource rather than linking to a resource, you could use
microdata or RDFa.
