[Bug 12224] Drop rel=pingback. The Pingback spec seems dead and unused, and redundant with the Referer header.

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Any term that is well-established and used should go in the spec.

IMHO, we should to a state where the registry is just used to avoid name
clashes in development, and once a feature is proved we should move it to the
spec. I haven't set that up yet, but that's where I'm headed.
