Julian, you continue to bring this up as if we hadn't already discussed
this: there are significant differences of opinion with mnot on whether
his interpretation of @rel values is correct in prior HTML versions, and
there are a number of folks who disagree (not just us in RDFa),
including at least two RECs (RDFa and GRDDL).
The point is: if you assume that @rel="foo" always means the same thing,
then many folks believe you're already violating the HTML spec, which
specifically uses @profile to modulate the meaning of @rel, and
sometimes via another level of indirection.
