To be honest, I do not remember having discussed this in the past. I must admit I do not have strong feeling about this, although the @href/@resource example is compelling indeed.

I agree this is a decision we have to do soon, hopefully before the next publication round (although... with the publication moratorium kicking in this week, maybe it is better not to rush and leave this as an open issue for last call).

FWIW my implementation does not take @content into account right now; it actually overrides one if it is there. But it is easy to change it.

Sorry, it is early morning for me... I do not understand this.
