Subject: Errata: missing image/@format

As noted earlier on the list, I discovered that the <image> element is missing the @format attribute. My understanding was that in DITA 1.3, we were supposed to add @format to every linking element that didn't already have it (that is, to every element that uses @href). The specification today implies that it should exist, in the "DITA Linking" topic, noting that they are part of a unit of attributes describing whatever link is established. In addition, the @format attribute is supposed to be assigned a default based on the value of @href -- which only makes sense if the element can specify @format.

It looks like this should be treated as an errata - the attribute should have been present in 1.3 to begin with, as it is on all other linking elements.
