Re: 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]

In my mind the language I proposed requires that an attribute be 
supported in a host language.  Therefore it would have to be supported 
on at least one element in order for the host language to be 
conforming.  Do you disagree?

This might be used by a Host Language that only wanted to support RDFa Lite to limit its support to just the RDFa Lite attributes and not include eg datatype.
