Hi all

Shut me up and give me a link if this has been discussed before, but I can't 
find it on Google. Has there been any discussion of allowing the href-attribute 
in (almost) any element, as in XHTML 2.0?

Personally I think this is the one killer feature of XHTML 2 and I would soo 
much like it ASAP in all browsers.

Turning

<a href="http://www.whatwg.org/"><abbr title="Web Hypertext Application 
Technology Working Group">WHATWG</abbr></a>

into

<abbr href="http://www.whatwg.org/" title="Web Hypertext Application Technology 
Working Group">WHATWG</abbr>

makes perfect sense to me.

1. (Repeat) if this has already been discussed, please give me a relevant link.

2. If not, correct the errors of my way, if there actually is some good 
arguments against this being part of WHATWG as well as XHTML 2.0
