I have been promoting the use of the simpler "primarytopic" rel value
as a pattern for linking HTML pages to the things they are about. I
don't think we need to complicate things with pseudo namespaces etc
for HTML, just focus on something simple people can copy.

You can see it in use on data.gov.uk:

http://education.data.gov.uk/doc/school/500006

contains:

<link rel="primarytopic" href="http://education.data.gov.uk/id/school/500006" />
