Thank you Philip that is the most useful set of data I have seen for a 
long time

It basically says that the whole premise that HTML5 should drop *rev*  
(a) because authors use it wrong, (b)  Many authors use rev-stylesheet  
wrong,  is a MYTH and an inaccurate assessment of  the *rev* attribute

Out of the 127249 pages studied, only  0.09% actually use rev="stylesheet"

Great stuff Thanks!
