I'm not surprised to hear that you had thought of that. :-)

Yes, please. I have hereby - via this and the preceding messages - 
formally asked that you add support for @cite and @longdesc to 
XHTML+RDFa - and in as many other RDFa implementations and specs that 
you care for, on the basis that these are anchor link like attributes 
etc. :-)

Btw, tidbit: my day-to-day Web browser, iCab, both support @longdesc 
functionally and also - conceptionally -lists any longdesc link amongst 
all others links in its link list tool. (I must check whether it also 
lists @cite links in the link list tool ...)
