I had an action[1] to document the @id/@about ambiguity issue and open
it up for discussion:

http://rdfa.info/wiki/rdfa-in-html-issues#Mixing_id_and_about_on_the_same_element

We need to determine if creating markup like this is an acceptable practice:

<p id="foo" about="#foo">Some text</p>

The argument is that the document containing the markup above contains
two semantically different URLs to the same location, thus creating some
semantic ambiguity. Thoughts?
