The RDFa syntax document is in flux, so thanks for pointing out these
issues that lack clarity!

I believe that we agreed that having an about or id would override the
subject, just as expected. The point here is that if you put an about on
the HTML element, the HEAD is still about="" by default. This was for
backwards compatibility purposes with existing META elements.

Mark, Steven, am I missing something?

Yes, in the case of a HEAD without an ABOUT or ID, it does.
