[whatwg] Where did the "rev" attribute go?

Automatic: class=A-N means A N.  No spec needed.
E.g.: class=red-herring means a red herring, and class=important-news means
some important news.

With you so far... But so what? As you say, this all works. Why do we need 
a generic mechanism? The only reason the computer "knows" that Krempeaux 
is your family name is because someone wrote a spec for class=family-name. 
It's not automatic, how can it be?
