At least my Opera browser consumes them very well. And for highly
complex documentation sets presented on web it is very convenient to
have such navigation. HTML5 should cater for existing usage and not
throw away useful feature because 99% of users doesn't need it.

This few rel values doesn't harm anyone and are already used.

Or should be each feature in HTML5 thrown away if it is not supported by
N major browsers?
