The problem with the rev attribute is that it's difficult for authors to
understand the concept of a reverse link relationship; and compared with
rel, it's hardly ever used.
There's only one use of rev that I'm aware of which is listed on
microformats.org. It's for vote-links, but I don't think those
relationships should be used anyway.

I think it should still be present, but it's semantics would need to be
clarified and explained. We should probably also identify some real use
cases where it is actually useful for authors.

Can you more clearly define what you mean by "opaque semantics"?
