Ah, interesting; I may have spoken too soon. While the Link *header*  
defined rel in RFC2068 as an sgml-name;

           relationship   = sgml-name
                          | ( <"> sgml-name *( SP sgml-name) <"> )

(section 19.6.2.4)

HTML4 itself defines it thus;

<!ENTITY % LinkTypes "CDATA"
     -- space-separated list of link types
     -->

<http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/sgml/dtd.html#LinkTypes>
