Do you have an example?

In my experience, WebPages often describe some primary entity and WebPageElements describe some secondary entity. If you model *those things* using Schema.org<http://Schema.org>, the question of whether one entity "mentions" or "hasPart" the other becomes easier to consider.

I was wondering, is there a conclusive answer yet as to whether it's alright to connect a WebPageElement to a WebPage by means of the 'mentions' property or will it be the 'hasPart' property once the 'WebSchemas/Periodicals, Articles and Multi-volume Works' proposal is done/accepted and should I start using that already?

I'm already using 'mentions' for about a year now on multiple sites and I'm doubtful on how to proceed on new sites.

Hi Wes,
Tanks, but I think we need a conceptual element at the level of schema.org<http://schema.org>, independent of syntax. One day people will use JSON-LD to expose respective information, so HTML5- or WAI-ARIA elements are of limited use.
