[Bug 12224] Drop rel=pingback. The Pingback spec seems dead and unused, and redundant with the Referer header.

Would that make <link rel=pingback> invalid? That would be unforunate, because
it's actually used by WordPress:

<link rel="pingback" href="http://blog.foolip.org/xmlrpc.php" />

I haven't looked into it, but I assume that when you publish a blog post,
WordPress fetches all linked pages and looks for <link rel=pingback> in order
to make that magic work.
