I'm sorry but I don't think you can say the second two are more
generic than the first two. I think maybe to say something is generic
it should have a data model, like XML is a tree format, and RDF is a
directed graph. I mean it seems to me at that level you can argue
about genericicity, but your second versions aren't generic, they are
just more general.

As for whether one should markup data or behavior I suppose the proper
answer is both but if one has to choose I would then go with Data.
