[Bug 8535] For the sake of consistency, should the misspelling not be preserved, at least as an accepted varient? The keywords "noreferrer" and "noreferer" should be equivalent.

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Originally I tried using the misspelling everywhere (for the sake of
consistency), but this was highly unpopular amongst pretty much everyone but
me, so I changed it to the right spelling where possible.

I don't think having both is a good idea; having two spellings for keywords
leads to all kinds of complications that are very hard to deal with, and which
are only worth it if there's a real big gain to be had. Here, there really
isn't.
