After reading through all the messages in this thread so far, I don't
think rel and rev are really what you're looking for. Those attributes
specify relationships between resources the resources identified by the
form is merely a form processor of some kind and that's not really
interesting at all.
What is interesting, however, is the purpose of the form: such as
indicating that it's a search form, a login form, comment form or
whatever else, and for that rel and rev are not appropriate for use on
the form itself.
