Thanks Stéphane, it is good to get reminded for people like me, whose memory is failing:-)

I would propose NOT to re-discuss this issue; we did it ad nauseam back then. I would propose to close this issue formally by adopting the resolution we took then, and move on.

> The aim of ISSUE-135 is to prevent a non-RDFa @rel to disable the new behavior of @property in RDFa+HTML5. In HTML5, @rel is used for many purposes ([1] and [2]), many of them are irrelevant to RDFa. When HTML authors use these values in @rel, they most likely don't do it with RDFa in mind, and in this context the behavior of @property should not change when a non-RDFa @rel is added to the same element.

I found that very few are combining @property with @rel in the same element, and when they do, they always use cc:license in @rel. In other words, I could not find any example that would break with the option choosen above. Here are the sources I looked at:
