Interesting suggestion. I can't help but wonder what exactly would this  
change to the "user experience". Rel for LINK and A is changing the user  
experience in user agents, because they can provide a "fixed" set of  
keyboard shortcuts (mouse gestures or whatever) for going to the  
previous/next page, help, home, author, etc.

What are your ideas about this? What would you like user agents to do  
based on various <form> rel= attributes?
