[RDFa] ISSUE-42: @src, following up, proposal to resolve

From: Ben Adida <ben@adida.net>

Message-ID: <469011A1.5000305@adida.net>
To: RDFa <public-rdf-in-xhtml-tf@w3.org>, SWD WG <public-swd-wg@w3.org>


Mark recently led a discussion of the @src attribute, specifically @src
on IMG. Here's how Mark summarized it:

==========
So to recap where this issue is at, so that those who haven't voted
yet can state their preference, the sentiment is that the attributes
with triple-generating potential on <img> are:

  <img about="s" rel="p" src="o" class="t">

and that 'type' applies to the object, 'o', rather than to the subject 's'.

As pointed out by Ben, in the sense that we have an element that
contains an object that is also a subject, then this construct echoes
striping. There may be scope for linking the two concepts in our
documentation, or at the very least--which may be what Ben is
saying--scope for showing that this isn't such a unique construct.

As for other attributes, such as @alt and @longdesc, we may or may not
revisit those in the future, when we've learned a bit more about real
life use-cases.
===========


I propose that we resolve ISSUE-42 exactly as above for XHTML1.1+RDFa.

We'll discuss on Thursday if there are issues with the above conclusion!
