I think I understand: processors cannot be required to know that they are
processing HTML5, or it is awful to contemplate adding special processing modes
to processors.

I like the idea of an RDFa processor knowing enough to understand time's
@datetime property, and there is nothing it the specification that prevents an
implementation that does this.

I think that everyone will understand why markup such as
<time datetime="2010-10-29" property="dc:modified" content="2007-01-01">
is likely to confuse people and should be avoided. The same can be said of
markup such as 
<time datetime="2010-10-29">December 31 1969</time> -- perfectly valid, and a
formal spec for XML should not be distorted in an attempt to avoid such.

Thanks for looking at this!
