ISSUE-132 (Is @src allowed everywhere?): Is the @src attribute defined in RDFa Core allowed on any element? [3rd LC Comments - RDFa 1.1 Core]

On product: 3rd LC Comments - RDFa 1.1 Core

Raised by Henri Sivonen:

The RDF Web Apps WG had previously decided that the @href, @rel and @rev attributes were to be allowed on any element. The current RDFa Core specification defines @src, and the processing rules for @src, but does not mention if the attribute is allowed everywhere. 

The assumption is that where @href, @rel, @rev, and @src are allowed is up to the Host Language (do we say this in the spec anywhere, and if we don't, we should). I don't think we ever intended @src to be used everywhere, but both Henri and Mike Smith's interpretation of the HTML+RDFa spec was that @src was allowed everywhere.

1. I don't think we ever meant @src to be allowed everywhere, we should clarify this.
2. We should also make it clear that it is up to the Host Language to define which elements can hold @href, @src, @rel, and @rev.
3. The HTML+RDFa spec should make it more clear which attributes are allowed on which elements.
