There are interesting questions raised by this attribute. It might be worthwhile to specify a bit more what the following text means:

	"src = URI
	This attribute specifies the location of an 
	external source for the contents of the 
	element. Actuation occurs as the default 
	action of a [DOM] load event for the element 
	that the attribute occurs on."

Example where "actuation" is not clear.

  <div class="news">
	<div class="newsitem"
    <h property="title">Love is the new consensus </h>
    <p>Sharing love has been decided to achieving 
	   consensus in international organization.</p>

- Are h and p replaced by the content linked by the src attribute?
- In terms of DOM, what does it mean? can a script on pieces of markup which have been loaded by URI?
- Is it a case for the changed attribute?
- When someone does a cut and paste, is it the rendered/replaced content which is cut and paste? or the initial content (here h and p)? If the first case, does it change in an authoring tool?
- what's happening with CSS when the initial content is being styled?
- What's happening if "love-hate.html" is not a real HTML file, but pieces of HTML code?
- In terms of accessibility, should both text be accessible, for example a screen reader? When it's an imagemap for navigation purpose has shown in 
- In terms of indexing what does that mean to actuate the link?
