current:
"The cite element now solely represents the title of a work (e.g. a book, a
paper, an essay, a poem, a score, a song, a script, a film, a TV show, a game,
a sculpture, a painting, a theatre production, a play, an opera, a musical, an
exhibition, a legal case report, etc). Specifically the example in HTML4 where
it is used to mark up the name of a person is no longer considered conforming."

suggested:

"The cite element represents a reference to a creative work (e.g. a book, a
paper, an essay, a poem, a score, a song, a script, a film, a TV show, a game,
a sculpture, a painting, a theatre production, a play, an opera, a musical, an
exhibition, a legal case report, a web site, a web page, a blog post or
comment, a forum post or comment, a tweet, a written or oral statement, etc).
It must include the title of the work or the name of the author(person, people
or organization) or an URL reference, or a reference in abbreviated form as per
the conventions used for the addition of citation metadata."
