there is a discussion going on about a meta referer. The Pros and Cons have been outlined in the WHAT WG wiki [1].

    This document describes a proposal the "referrer" 
    metadata name. Using the referrer metadata attri-
    bute, a document can control the behavior if the 
    Referer HTTP header attached to requests that 
    originate from the document.

In the markup, it would look like:

    <meta name="referrer" content="never">

with following values : never, always, origin, default
