Jim,

Thank you for pointing this out. We had included the text for the type
attribute that used to be associated with the @src. It has now been corrected.

> 
> 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

> definitive answer coming from the server.
