My read of the HTML5 doc shows only a couple of uses of @value:

The li element used within an ol, where @value is an integer (ordinal value)

Various form controls, where it is used as the value of the control

None of these seem to be valid meta-data use cases to me, so I don't see why this attribute should be called out in HTML+RDFa at all.
