The attribute subject points to one or more ID refs of entities defined in <head> that serve as the grammatical subject of a claim. @subject within <body> indicates the default subject(s) for <claim>s.

Multiple values of @subject are interpreted to mean "and", resulting in distribution of the claim (e.g., subject="x y" becomes "x [verby]..." and "y [verb]...").
