Wikipedia asserts,
that term 'hyperonim' means abstract general thing,
and term 'hyponim' means particular case of hyperonim
(don't mess up with 'holomin-meronin',
they are whole thing and physical part of thing accordingly).

In this terms,
'URI of resource' is hyperonim,
'to load and embed' and 'can be navigated' are hyponim.

If html-element has no _both_ hyponims simultaneously,
there is no any sense to distinguish hyponim in tag -
hyperonim specification is enough.


BB> Things like <caption> and <legend> do seem redundant.

Irony of fate:
i send new topic '<caption>=<legend>', just when i downloaded your letter :)

AS> I fear that his change would not be backwards compatible

New spec can allow both variant of names (old and new),
and can _recommend_ new variant.
This way mentioned in many documents of w3.org.

Excuse me, what is abbreviation 'AT' mean ?
And i don't understand cue, re-phrase, please.

I'm capable to connect to inet per 3 days (in average).
Mentioned event means, that i miss one session.

But this has one advantage: i have time to think.
