Hi Yves,
I think this is difficult to determine in the general case. Pointer 
allows us to define a 'convergence' or 'coexistence' path with HTML 
markup usage we already know about or that someone else might think up 
without requiring a new attribute.

http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-its20-20120731/#domain is a good example 
where ex 49 shows how meta type DC.subject could already be used in a 
similar manner as ITS domain, and hence the use of a pointer serves a 
useful function in allowing both markup functions to co-exist. One could 
image this happening with other proprietary uses of 'meta'.

But perhaps we should look at this on a case by case basis to decide if 
we think the Pointer option represents useful use case for HTML?
