It *is* about trust, right?

(1)  A -rev-> B

implies the same relation as

(2)  B -rel-> A

*but* it's A making the statement; just because A makes a claim about a 
rev link doesn't necessarily that B agrees about that (and will expose 
the link as well).

So the problem with the language in HTML4 is that it uses the term 
"reverse link" instead of "reverse (link) relation"?
