GRDDL spec doesn't handle <link rel="transformation and something else">

I just realized, via an RDFa discussion, that the HTML
rel attribute takes a list of values.
http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/struct/links.html#adef-rel

The GRDDL rules assume one.

[[
Given an XHTML family document with XPath root node N, if N has metdata
profile name http://www.w3.org/2003/g/data-view, then for each a and
link descendant element E whose rel attribute has value transformation,
the resource identified by the absolute form of the href attribute with
respect to the base IRI of E is a GRDDL transformation of N.
]]

(ah... now I see why HP/jjc wanted the quotes around "transformation",
too.)

The subject of this message is a test sketch.
I hope to flesh it out into a real test and find out
what current implementations do with it. Bonus
points to anybody who beats me to it.

If current implementations mostly pass, i.e. if the implementors
read the spec very generously, then maybe we can squeeze
by without another last call.
