Apropos vote-for, even specification of this Microformat confused rel with  
rev (and so did I when I first tried to use vote links, even though I'd  
read corrected version of the spec):
http://microformats.org/wiki/vote-links

There's also relevant entry on Microformat blog:

and finally use of rev has been deprecated in Microformats:
