[Bug 12223] Drop rel=help. It's for showing a button in the browser's UI which no browser shows by default. It doesn't seem to be helpful for users, so just wastes authors' time.

The only difference to class=help is that this one has a defined semantic
meaning so that you don't have to work out what the class is defined as when
moving from one project to another. This is the same as why we have most
attributes and elements in the language rather than just letting authors invent
their own language with each project.

We could do :link[rel~=help] { cursor: help }, is that a common UI?
