Looking at the diffs, it is clear that @value is intended for typed data, and that lexical scanning might be in order. I believe Hixie would reject this and say that the vocabulary must define the types and be explicitly supported by a processor, but for generic transformation this is not feasible.

If we do lexical scanning, what set of datatypes is appropriate? Thoughts?
