           Summary: inconsistent definition of "up" relation

Citing: Link type "up"

"The up keyword indicates that the document is part of a hierarchical
structure, and that the link is leading to the document that is the parent of
the current document."

So "up" always defines a relation to the parent document.

But wait...:

"The up keyword may be repeated within a rel attribute to indicate the
hierarchical distance from the current document to the referenced document.
Each occurrence of the keyword represents one further level. (...)"

So "up up" does not define a relation to the parent document, after all.

The simplest way to fix this is to remove the exception here; please do not
experiment with the link relation system in general unless it's clear that it's
