Would be more sensible to use some kind of URI scheme rather
than introducing a new attribute, something along the lines
of:

<a href="p2p:Britney%20Spears">Crud</a>

There is already an RFC for referring to TV channels, although I'm not
sure if programmes can be referred to. Works along the lines
of:

<a href="tv:london.bbc1.bbc.co.uk">BBC 1 (London Region)</a>

Either way, both of these seem like they should be handled at the
URI level, rather than the markup language level.
