[Bug 12374] "stylistically offset" means that this element has no semantic value whatsoever? It is jsut for style purpose? Then why not use a span? It seems strange to me that there is no specific element to mark up people. Even though there is a load of microdata av

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

The term "stylistically offset" is gone now.

Regarding marking up people, this could make sense, especially as identity
becomes more important on the Web. However, it's not clear to me what exactly
is needed here. Just being able to mark up someone's name doesn't seem that
useful, you really want an identifier. I think this is an area that really
requires more experimentation before we can standardise something.
