I am forced to disagree.  We have no way of constraining an RDFa Processor
to only do things in a Lite context or a non-Lite context.  Consequently,
any occurrence of @rel is going to be interpreted by a conforming
processor.  And one conforming Processor cannot work differently than
another with regard to the (minimal) triples generated, so all of the
values of @rel are going to be processed.

In theory a validator could flag the use of @rel on a <link> element, but
why?  @rel is legal everywhere according to RDFa Lite.  At least that is my
reading of the Profile.
