We now formalize/generalize the XHTML+RDFa spec to the more general XML world; in the former case we did define an implicit @about on <body> and <head> and I believe it is a reasonable thing to say that we generalize this instead of the decision we took yesterday. In _that_ sense, that decision was wrong. Manu's proposal is therefore to overturn the decision of yesterday and introduce a rule that says "have an explicit @about=BASE on the top element, unless there is already one" (it is more complicated, I know, but it boils down to that, effectively.) _And I agree with the proposal_.

Likewise, I agree with the proposal of setting about="", but because 
it's good to generate the triples, not because the current spec has a 
technically fault.
