Indeed. In particular, the link is *not* being followed, it's *only*
bookmarked.

In FF 3.6, a similar dialog for bookmarking appears, but I'm not sure how I
would actually get to see the sidebar.

In Safari/Chrome/IE, this doesn't seem to have an effect.

Is anybody using it?

FF and Opera developers: could you try to come up with a more accurate
description of what it does?

I personally believe that this isn't a good use of a link relation; if it gets
registered than optimally as deprecated.
