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

I assume that you have too much current work to remember what you have
written and why.  You suggested that using class names as semantic
attributes requires some central authority to publish a specification of the
microformat in order that the robots are able to find out the meaning of the
class names used.  I disagreed because I think the meaning can be inferred
from the names themselves.
And no, this is not a request for a change.

I don't understand this post; please let me know if it was requesting a 
change to the spec (ideally by explaining what is wrong with the spec 
that needs changing).
