Elaborate; they both refer to the next resource in a sequence of
documents. Note that a document may be an element in multiple
sequences of documents.

If I understand correctly, the feature you want that's not supported
by rel=next and rel=prev is sending a draft to a server when switching
forms. Even better than that would be saving a draft for every input
filled by a user. This draft can be written to a local disk, or stored
at networked servers for global access, for the user agent to refill
when the user revisits the form. I think some user agents already
implement the latter, so that leaves bells, whistles and transitions.
