@role should follow rules defined in XHTML 1.1 Role Module
------------------------------------------------------------

This is not an official comment from the RDF in XHTML Task Force and
will probably be mentioned by the XHTML WG. Mark, Shane and Steven were
on todays RDFa telecon and had issues with the lack of specifics as to
how an author could use @role. Just a heads up that they would like to
see it clearly stated that use of @role should follow the specifics
outlined in the XHTML Role Attribute Module[4]. We want to make sure
that authors are not under the false assumption that they can put
whatever they want to in the @role attribute.

Related notes:

Partly agree. Did clarify spec along those lines, but accessibility feedback and spec maturity dictated looser wording than commentor requested.
