The rel attribute is about links. What I meant by that is that I  
think it would be useful to have a private domain for link types too.  
It would work a little differently than on class though, because the  
current spec disallows unregistered link types while it allows  
unregistered class names. My proposal would be to allow unregistered  
link types if they start with a dash "-".

  - - -

By the way, it would certainly be more coherent if unregistered class  
names were disallowed too (unless they start with a dash), but that  
would also make countless documents non-conformant with HTML5 so I'm  
not sure it's a so good idea. I can't say I dislike the idea though.
