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

Isn't this related to the issue raised by Ben in

http://www.w3.org/mid/46900890.3030500@adida.net

I got mixed up there on the issue of what exactly
the_attribute_that_shall_not_be_named refers to (which subject) and (if
my understanding is correct) Ben's proposal would introduce another case
where that attribute would not apply on the usual subject but rather to
an object. Am I wrong?
