No, sorry, I believe that's *exactly* what it tells you. When you're
writing HTML with GRDDL (or with eRDF, which has the same indirection
property), you're saying "this is how to interpret my value of @rel."

Put another way: if you're willing to mistakenly interpret rel="foobar"
the same way in two documents that have different GRDDL transformations
(same GRDDL profile), then you can misinterpret the RDFa, too. Fine by
me. What's the difference?
