Limiting an item's type to just one thing and making properties like 'name'
specific to that type is unnecessarily limiting. It is quite often that
something in the real world can be multiple types of things - a car can be a
vehicle and a shelter. A person can be a mother and a sibling. I don't agree
that objects that are singly-typed should be the way forward for a semantic
expression language in HTML5. That said, I don't think that the editor is going
to change his mind on this issue. The reasoning behind the requirement of
multiple types per item has been made clear, the Editor is still not convinced,
I am not happy with the resulting limitation it places on content authors. My
concern has not been addressed, but I'm dropping the issue.
