origDate and origPlace are used to indicate date and place of "origin" of a manuscript. Extending this to deal with early printed matter begs some questions as to what exactly is meant by "origin" -- date/place of first printing? of first publication? of first surviving copy? etc. It is proposed to use @type to distinguish amongst these types of "origin", by adding these two elements to the att.typed class.

    This seems completely reasonable to me, and the same could be said about manuscript materials as well. (Nothing springs to mind, but I'm sure we could find an example.) With printed material it is clearly needed.

    since <place> can be typed, this seems like a logical sugaring of <place type="origPlace" subtype="whatever">
    to <origPlace type="whatever"> as commonly seen in the TEI. <date> / <origDate> ditto.

    Added origDate and origPlace to att.typed at rev 4785.
