ISSUE-146 (HTML5 head/body): HTML5+RDFa needs rule for implied @about="" on head/body [RDFa 1.1 in HTML5]

Raised by: Gregg Kellogg
On product: RDFa 1.1 in HTML5

XHTML+RDFa has the following clauses for Step 5 and Step 6 to act as if there is an implied @about="" on head and body elements:

In section 7.5, processing step 5, if no IRI is provided by a resource attribute (e.g., @about, @href, @resource, or @src), then first check to see if the element is the head or body element. If it is, then act as if the new subject is set to the parent object.
In section 7.5, processing step 6, if no IRI is provided by a resource attribute (e.g., @about, @href, @resource, or @src), then first check to see if the element is the head or body element. If it is, then act as if the new subject is set to the parent object.

These rules are missing from HTML5+RDFa; I presume that these are intended there as well, but were left out due to an oversight. Test 0066 tests for this, and would fail for HTML5/XHTML5 otherwise.
