*#* rel="taggedlink" would mean you couldn't mark a link as both "taggedlink" and "nofollow". Social bookmarking services often want to apply rel="nofollow" to their user-generated external links (to avoid being attractive targets for spam). class="taggedlink" combines with rel="nofollow". rel="taggedlink" would be a problem.

xFolk issues

These are externally raised issues about xFolk with broadly varying degrees of merit. Thus some issues are REJECTED for a number of obvious reasons (but still documented here in case they are re-raised), and others contain longer discussions. Some issues may be ACCEPTED and perhaps cause changes or improved explanations in the spec. Submitted issues may (and probably will) be edited and rewritten for better terseness, clarity, calmness, rationality, and as neutral a point of view as possible. Write your issues well. — Bud

2007-01-03 addressed by Bud Gibson. Well, we had a lot of list discussion on this while creating xFolk. Actually, that was pre-list. The rationale is that the tags apply to the items in the container not the page simply by convention in xFolk. It's a specialization of reltag. The real question I think is what are the scoping rules for reltag. The assumption here is that the reltag tags only apply to the link within xfolkentry.

2007-01-03 addressed by Bud Gibson. Mainly because the purpose of the microformat was originally to allow harvesting into aggregation services for creating "folksonomies".

2007-01-03 addressed by Bud Gibson. I'm in a quandary as to how to address this one. It seems like a basic incompatibility.
