Only http://microformats.org/wiki/existing-rel-values is referenced from
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/links.html#other-link-types . Thus, the
others have no bearing on HTML5.

As for the content of http://microformats.org/wiki/existing-rel-values ,
right now the vast majority of the link types documented there are not
registered with all the data
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/links.html#other-link-types requires
registrations to have, so the pre-existing content on the wiki that
doesn't meet the formalities required by HTML5 has to be considered not
to constitute registrations at this time.
