Yes, I suspect the spec will have to be a bit more formal, indeed.

That said, I realized that, in my haste I didn't completely cover this
issue. Now that it looks like we have instanceof as the current leader
in the pool, what happens with:

<img about="s" rel="p" src="o" instanceof="t" />

I think we agreed last time (though Ralph was looking into this more
deeply), that this would result in:

s p o .
o rdf:type t .

I think that's what it should be. Now, what happens if we say:

<a about="s" rel="p" href="o" instanceof="t">
  foo
</a>

I think the same thing should happen, meaning instanceof applies to the
@href when it's present.

*But*, that's a different discussion, so let me make this issue
resolution clearer. So, PROPOSED RESOLUTION:

"
The @src attributes on IMG behaves as follows:
- the object of @rel on IMG is @src
- if @instanceof is present, the rdf:type applies to @src
- subject resolution is normal.
"
