It's been optional, and only included in a couple of specs from RDF-related specs AFAIK. It seems to me that there's really no downside to making this the default (perhaps with an option to turn it off). This would make extracting such information from the specs themselves much less error prone.

Spec type would be really useful, it could as an extra type in addition to bibo:Document.

The subject of the document should probably be based on it's version URL, and not the document location to. Moreover, we may want to use a fragid for the document, to avoid HTTP range-14 discussions. For example:

@base <http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/REC-rdfa-core-20120607/> .
<#this> a bibo:Document, w3c:Recommendation;
  dcterms:title "RDFa Core 1.1";
  ...

(just made up w3c:Recommendation, perhaps there's an existing vocabulary for recommendation types.)
