Almost missed this. This is a bug report / feature request against HTML
+RDFa on the HTMLWG issue tracker. We might want to consider it as input
to the RDFaWG too.

           Summary: HTML+RDFa - Infer @content from @datetime on time tag
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML+RDFa (editor: Manu Sporny)
        AssignedTo: msporny@digitalbazaar.com
        ReportedBy: waters.boyd@gmail.com

Consider this markup:

<body prefix="dc: http://purl.org/dc/terms/">
<time datetime="2010-10-29T15:48:11" property="dc:modified" pubdate>October
29th 2010 at 11:48 AM</time>
<time datetime="2010-10-29T15:36:24" property="dc:created">October 29th 2010 at
11:36 AM</time>

I would like the @content attribute to be inferred from the time's @datetime.

In the spec right now it seems that the @content attribute will get the text
contents of the time tag, in this case "October 29th 2010 at 11:48 AM". Which
is invalid.

Or perhaps the markup is invalid, because the @content is missing.

But it SHOULD be an error to say something like
<time datetime="2010-10-29T15:48:11" property="dc:modified"

That's valid markup -- it's possible to set @content to any valid W3 date value
-- but what are the semantics?

(I have not participated in semantic web activity in about 7 years, and my
specification-reading skills have blown away. So perhaps the current draft
HTML+RDFa spec already has this. But I don't think so.)
