Dear HTML Working Group,

The type attribute is defined to be of ContentTypes, but the prose says that 
it specifies the content type of the resource:

"This attribute specifies the content type of the resource designated by the 
src attribute. It is used to help the user agent decide whether it can 
process this element's contents. "

Please clarify the specification such that it is clear if the type attribute 
lists one content-type or many.

Also, please clarify if the type attribute _specifies_ the content type of 
the resource, of if it is advisory information on the resource with the 
definitive answer coming from the server.
