just one small remark: the property vs. rel issue is orthogonal. All these terms are recognized by both property and rel.

I think the best way forward is to raise an issue by the RDFa wg

Or more radically for HTML+RDFa 1.1 processors to ignore the @rel attribute altogether, which could be possible if the @property attribute takes on the additional semantics that the RDFWAWG have been talking about.
