Schema "Action" Question

I'm studying a page (it's on a dev server, so I can't link to it) and it's using itemprop="action" within the code of every link -- about 70 of them. I looked up http://schema.org/Action since I'd never encountered that before, and I'm thinking the developers of the page must have gotten this wrong, so I've got a bunch of questions:

Is this the proper use of the code?

Even if Action can be used as an itemprop of WebPage, isn't Action an itemtype, with itemprops of its own, and wouldn't that need to be reflected in the code for each link?

If this is even partially correct, what's the potential benefit of having it in place? Who or what is helped by defining a link as the "action" of a page?

If a link can be considered the action of a page, can multiple links serve as the many and various actions of that page?

Is it possible that this has nothing to do with schema.org (and isn't intended to), and assigning an itemprop to a link is related to something in the CMS?

We've just announced our scholarship program today. If you know any students who are thinking about a career in the games industry (and it doesn't even have to be someone who's studying game development), please help us spread the word about this. If it goes well, I think we're going to offer the scholarship every semester.

The title attribute on this one reminds of the domain name in the movie "Fear Dot Com" -- it was feardotcom.com.

It seems I don't have any more invitations, but I think that's because you're no longer required to have an invitation to get in. You should be able to install the software on your own.

Story
Introduction
I've been an internet marketing consultant since late 1999 or early 2000, initially as the webmaster of a small software company in the Boston area. I've been working as a freelance SEO since early 2003 doing business as Raise My Rank SEO Services, and I joined GSN Games as SEO Manager in February 2013 after working as an in-house SEO at Monster for two years.

I'm pretty active in a number of the online communities where SEOs hang out, especially the High Rankings Forum, where I serve as a moderator under the name "qwerty".

My education includes a BA in English and an MA in the History of World Cinema, so while I may be a total geek, I'm not a total internet geek.
Bragging rights
I can proudly say that I'm really not one to brag.

My cat used to get so frightened and belligerent at the vet's office that he had to be knocked out in order for the doctor to examine him. When Dr. Ullrich took over the practice, that changed.
