I am as confused as Manu. If we have:

<div about="A" rel="B" resource="C" instanceof="T">

that clearly gives

A rdf:type T

Take away @rel and @about and suddenly it's C that's of type T? I though
this kind of inconsistency was the major downside of my proposal, so
seeing it back is very weird.

Note that the model where @instanceof applies always to the subject,
defined by either @about, @src, or a bnode, works very well in my code
without special cases. I don't see how I would make those other cases
work without a bunch of special-case tests, so maybe I'm missing something.
