            Bug ID: 25398
           Summary: REV attribute marked as obsolete in HTML 5 CR, but
                    allowed by RDFa REC
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CR HTML5 spec
          Assignee: robin@w3.org
          Reporter: mark.rogers@powermapper.com
        QA Contact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org

There's a contradiction between the HTML 5 CR and the RDFa Core 1.1 over the
status of the REV attribute

>From HTML5 CR and 5.1 nightly:

11.2 Non-conforming features"
"The following attributes are obsolete (though the elements are still part of
the language), and must not be used by authors:
"rev on a elements"
"rev on link elements

RDFa Core 1.1 - Second Edition says:

"RDFa supports the use of @rel and @rev on any element"

This is certainly confusing at the moment. Removing REV from the list of
obsolete attributes in HTML 5 seems like the simplest, lowest impact fix.
