Hey folks,

I did a sweep through the open issues that we have in the issue tracker.
Here are the proposals that I think will have consensus among the group.
Just capturing it all in one place to make our discussion this Thursday
go a bit more smoothly:


ISSUE-143: Prefixes too complicated

We discussed this issue and made a number of resolutions. We're awaiting
feedback from Tab before sending him an official response.


ISSUE-144: Add @itemref-like attribute

An experimental feature has been added to HTML+RDFa 1.1 called "Property
Copying" which achieves what Microdata's @itemref achieves.


PROPOSAL: Adopt the 'Property Copying' feature as described in the
2013-01-06 HTML+RDFa Editors Draft.


ISSUE-145: @content override @value

PROPOSAL: When both @content and @value appear on the same HTML element,
the value of @content MUST be used.


ISSUE-146: HTML5+RDFa needs rule for implied @about="" on head/body	

No it doesn't, we resolved this here:


RESOLVED: Modify HTML+RDFa and XHTML+RDFa to modify processing steps #5
and #6 from assuming an empty @about value to assuming that new subject
is set to the parent object.

We messed up and included that rule in XHTML+RDFa 1.1. We should publish
a PER for that spec with the rules for an empty about="" on HEAD and BODY.

PROPOSAL: Close issue 146 with no change to HTML+RDFa. Remove the rules
for injecting an empty about="" for XHTML+RDFa and issue a PER for that


ISSUE-147: Preserve markup by default

We are trying to get Sebastian on an RDFa WG telecon so that we can
discuss this issue with him in more depth. However, a number of the WG
members have voiced their reservations about changing this behavior in
HTML+RDFa 1.1.

PROPOSAL: Do not change the HTML+RDFa 1.1 rules to preserve markup by
