[whatwg] Ghosts from the past and the semantic Web

I think WHATWG is open to wisdom from outside.  However, accepting wisdom
makes no sense, wisdom should be understood and rationally implemented.  You
have confused wisdom and faith.  And wisdom is about how things work or can
work, not about how you spell this and that.
The proposition was about allowing a generic attribute name scheme "meta-*",
not about allowing one or more attributes.

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?
