           Summary: I loved the idea in XHTML2 of the (nearly) global href
                    and src attributes across all elements. This would
                    have greatly simplified HTML coding, offered
                    considerably more meaning and flexibility than
                    attributes like alt and longdesc do, and connected
                    semant

Comment:
I loved the idea in XHTML2 of the (nearly) global href and src attributes
across all elements. This would have greatly simplified HTML coding, offered
considerably more meaning and flexibility than attributes like alt and
longdesc do, and connected semantic elements with content in a more direct
way. I hereby request that these elements be brought into HTML5. Thank you.
