Hit Commit too soon:

rel="edit" indicates a link that can be used to edit the current resource,
e.g., if it's a wiki.  It's been proposed by the Universal Edit Button project
<http://universaleditbutton.org/>.  That documents a number of sites using
either rel="edit", or the older poorly-conceived <link rel="alternate"
type="application/x-wiki">:

http://universaleditbutton.org/Universal_Edit_Button#Sites_with_Universal_Editing_Button

Users of rel="edit" include MediaWiki, and therefore Wikipedia.  As far as
implementation goes, there are extensions written for Firefox, Opera, and
Chrome.  It seems like potentially useful semantics, although only for a fairly
narrow class of sites (wikis and CMSes).  I'm pretty sure the level of
implementation and deployment exceeds some currently specced rel values, like
tag, so I don't see why this shouldn't be in the spec.  Are there any specific
standards you'd like to see that this doesn't meet?
