I would love to see these changes.  Can you cut-n-paste your proposed
text into an e-mail?

I just ran into this problem today testing my RDFa implementation and
came to similar, but not completely the same, conclusions.  It seems
to me that the specification needs at least to say that the "typed
resource" is set to the value of the "new subject" established from
the @about attribute's presence.  That can simply be stated by adding
a bullet to the second part of 5.1 about the typed resource that says:

  * otherwise, by using the IRI from @about, if present ....

but I'm not following why the current object resource should not be
set.  Do we have an example that demonstrates why that should not be
set when @about and @typeof co-occur?
