You may already be aware that Hixie has resolved the issue on replacing <time> with <data> [1] and made the relevant changes in the spec [2]. The new <data> element has a @value attribute which is used to provide the relevant microdata property value [3].

It would be great if it were possible for RDFa to also use the @value attribute on the <data> element to provide the machine-readable value for a property. (This is similar to rdfa-ISSUE-97, which is overtaken by events.) If it were, using <data> and the @value attribute would be an alternative to using the @content attribute in (X)HTML+RDFa, which perhaps could mean discouraging the use of @content in those formats.

What would be the best way forward to address this? Would filing an HTML+RDFa bug be helpful?
