I support the three who argue that most every reader of the Guidelines
is confused when we are inconsistent in the use of attribute values. So
while I think it's fine for the Guidelines to say that you can use any
vocabulary for an attribute like @rend, the examples should be
consistent when such use is incidental rather than central to the
current discussion at hand.
