Hi,

this is a quote from <http://microformats.org/wiki/html5#Issues>:

".... In HTML5, rel and rev are no-longer paired, and the rel attribute 
nolonger describes the direction of a relationship. Microformats which 
use rev will need to use rel instead."

If this was the case (@rel not implying a direction), this would be very 
very bad.

Tantek -- did you write this? How did you come to this conclusion?

Best regards, Julian
