On the topic of vocabulary design, the picky category:
What is the best attribute name for "referencing" URLs? href or src?
Among common W3C vocabularies I see no pattern in the choice of names. For
example, XInclude uses @href, but XHTML's script element uses src. What makes
into another, from the "source" definition?
A search for "define: href" on google says it's a Hypertext Reference. Isn't
the content of a src element that too?
This is the answer: 1) There's no pattern, it's all random; 2) Frans should go
do something useful.
