Hi,
This is a QA Review comment for "XHTML 2.0"

About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml2-20060726/mod-metaAttributes.html#adef_metaAttributes_property

XHTML 2.0 specifications says 

	"property = QName
	This attribute indicates which property is 
	being defined by the element. If it is not 
	specified, the property is reference."

QName means one and only one value for the attribute property. Is it a requirement for making the model of meta element compatible with RDF. There is one problem with that.
It is not possible to define anymore new value for "class" in a defined way, because the profile attribute has been removed in the benefit of meta.

Then there will be a need in the specification for showing the authors how they can achieve something similar to:

See http://microformats.org/wiki/hcard#Examples

	<div class="vcard">
	 <a class="url fn" href="http://tantek.com/">Tantek Çelik</a>
	 <div class="org">Technorati</div>
	</div>

There are cases where there is a strong benefit to have the possibility to use multiple values. How do we achieve this in XHTML 2.0 with the property value with a simple markup.
