Then don't spec it but advise or suggest it.  Even the bookmark example 
says "A user agent could determine which permalink applies to which part 
of the spec"
thereby acting as a advisory hint/best practice suggestion (note the use 
of "could").

I also tested the example code (with doctype html obviously) and the 
browser behaviouir is still the same, rel="bookmark" is simply ignored. 
In that case shouldn't rel="bookmark" be removed from the WHATWG HTML 
spec to reflect actual use?
