This is a QA Review comment for "XHTML 2.0"

About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml2-20060726/mod-object.html#sec_25.1.

	"archive = URIs
	    This attribute may be used to specify a 
		space-separated list of URIs for archives 
		containing resources relevant to the object, 
		which may include the resources specified by 
		the src attribute."

The definition is obscure and doesn't explain the purpose the attribute. The assertions are not clear as well. Let's try to give an example of clear statement At least:

	"archive = URIs
	    This attribute is OPTIONAL.
	    "archive" attribute MUST contain a space-separated list of URIs for values.
		URIs MUST be resources relevant to the object.
	+ some definitions about the notion of archives and relations to src attributes which are not clear for now.
