Hola,

I see that the Creative Commons has proposed additions to HTML
to support licenses (ccREL): 
http://www.w3.org/Submission/2008/SUBM-ccREL-20080501/

As an example, they offer:

<div about="http://lessig.org/blog/"
xmlns:cc="http://creativecommons.org/ns#">
    This page, by 
    <a property="cc:attributionName" rel="cc:attributionURL"
          href="http://lessig.org/">
       Lawrence Lessig
    </a>,
    is licensed under a
    <a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/">
      Creative Commons Attribution License
    </a>.
</div>

Unless I missed something in the HTML5 spec, at the least this would add
the "property" attribute to <a>.  Wouldn't ccREL be expressed better
using <link> instead of <a>?

Matt
