           Summary: Problems related to the current definition of rel
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: jirka@kosek.cz

In section 4.2.4 The link element the spec prohibits usage of additional
keywords in rel attribute.

At the same time it is not possible to create document which will be conforming
over the period of time, because list of allowed keywords is not listed in the
spec but it is available only on external uF site.

Spec should allow arbitrary keywords to allow for extensibility, or at least
create special conformance class for documents using such additional keywords.

Also keywords registered at uF site at the certain date should be copied as an
appendix of the HTML spec to have snapshots against document can be made

It's unacceptable if document conformance is relying on external registry,
which can change over the time. A lot of organizations is required by law to
publish conforming documents, but they don't expect that conformance can change
