           Summary: Semantics of rel=first and rel=index breaks specs and
                    implementations

The current draft defines semantics for rel="index" and rel="first" that break
with current specs (HTML 4 and XHTML) as well as with implementations (Opera
9.x, Seamonkey and iCab).

In a summary, the draft 

a) makes synonyms out of rel keywords that are not keywords in any other spec
or implementation 

       Example: "begin" and "start" as synonyms for "first". ("First" isn't
defined in specs at all yet.)
       See draft:
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#link-type-first

b) splits keywords that otherwise are synonyms. 

        Example: "top" is split from "start" and "home" [and made synonymous
with "index" instead see above]
        See draft:
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#link-type-index
