And one of the answers on that page:

 <blockquote about="urn:isbn:978-0-521-51385-2" 
cite="urn:isbn:978-0-521-51385-2">

Here one could claim that you draw a parallel between @cite and @about 
- it is a subject. My thinking has been that if RDFa gets native 
support for @cite, then it should treated like @href and @resource.

However, perhaps it is you who are on the right track here: @cite can 
be seen as a semi-embedding of the quoted source. In that way it can 
been seen as similar to @src - the @src defines a subject.

Comment?
