[whatwg] Ghosts from the past and the semantic Web

What is wrong with "job-title" for "Job Title" and "title" for "Book Title"?
(The reason is that "Job Title" really is not a person's title at all).
The correct relations are:
A book has exactly one title.
A person has several jobs 
(especially when she is a scientist or a doctor in Poland :-)).
Each job has exactly one title.
So "job title" is a shortcut property while "book title" is a real property.

How do you differentiate "Job Title" from "Book Title" in a way that
scales to the web? You need unique identification, and a way to explore
more information about the data field.
