Hi all,

There appears to be divergent opinion on the current definition of the
<cite>[1] element:

http://24ways.org/2009/incite-a-riot/

http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Cite_element


As I was pinged about it by a developer, thought it would be useful to
bring it to the list for discussion.

Questions:

Is there any basis for re-examining the defitnition? i.e. use cases, usage
data

If yes, is there any interest in doing so?
