Hi Ben,

Back already! I'll be on the call. :)

At the moment, I'm not totally sure, but it is a major change, and it
was the main cause of problems in my original drafts, so it would need
a lot more thought than simply saying it looks ok.

That wouldn't be the first time. :) I have proposed many things that
I've gone back on, such as using @class for rdf:type, and having @href
set the subject of the contained elements to mention but a few. ;)

Yes...that's what pains me. :) And also @rev is so handy that I can
see it being used even with @resource.

Which all taken together is why I said I won't be arguing against keeping it.
