Re: Avoid setting href as new subject when no rel/rev is present

Hi Stéphane,

- The usage of @rel="" is technically correct in my reading of the spec
(and my distiller code:-): step 5 of the processing steps[1] is applied,
and that step only refers to the existence of @rel/@rev not whether they
provide valid URI-s.

- Whether it is good practice or not is of course another question. As
far as I am concerned, I think it is cleaner if, eg, an explicit @about
is placed there (as Toby proposed). This may be a bit of a pain for a
human author but it does not cost a penny, I presume, for an automatic
procedure in Drupal...
