Hi all,

I looked into what CC's CTO and ex-CTO think of @href everywhere
situation, given that CC's current licensing engine hands out RDFa that
includes @href on a SPAN. It turns out that my intuition was very off:

1) they don't think @href on a SPAN implies "clickable"

2) if XHTML2 makes @href navigable in some way, they see this is a
significant plus.

As a result of this user feedback, I am changing my position on this
issue. @href everywhere works for me. There remains a question as to
whether we need @resource, but I am inclined to say we do not need it in
XHTML1.1+RDFa, at this point.

Steven and Mark, I appreciate your insisting on your point of view here,
 because it pushed me to look into this more deeply and get more
concrete user feedback.

Fire away!
