Re: PROPOSAL to close ISSUE-45: cite and longdesc support

  I believe that the discussion was aware that this work might be done 
in XHTML+RDFa.  In the end, I agree with the working group that it would 
be inappropriate at this time to try to introduce any processing rules 
for @cite and @longdesc in any flavor of RDFa.  My recollection of the 
meeting is that this opinion was agreed by the majority of the people
