So it seems you agree with the principles of adding one (or more)
attributes. But the requirement here, for Creative Commons and Digital
Bazaar and the UK National Archives and ... is to get proper RDF in
there. So once you agree with the general principle, why re-invent
something yet again? Does everything about HTML5 have to be invented
here, or can some wisdom from outside be accepted, too?
