Subject: Re: [dita] Clarification on data Element

I also have noticed that this is a common problem for many reused attributes.

Those with element-specific meanings should be reviewed.

Hi Eliot - I can't speak to the value/content conflict, but I can speak a
little to the value attribute description. As many of you know, the
language reference was originally designed to reuse attribute descriptions.
The value attribute was documented in DITA 1.0 for the <param> element,
where that description makes sense. The value attribute for the data
element and all of its specializations should have a new definition.

The <data> element can have either a value= attribute or
directly-contained data. The description of data in the 2/13 spec
doesn't say what it means to have both a value= attribute and
content--should this case be disallowed?

Also, the description of value= is:

"Specifies the value of a run-time parameter specified by the name

I think this must be a typo because it doesn't make any sense.
