[microformats-discuss] Ambiguities in reltag specification

On reading the specification <http://www.microformats.org/wiki/reltag> to
things jump out as unclear. Here is a modified version of the example from
<a href="http://technorati.com/tag/tech" rel="tag">apple</a>
According to the spec, the actual tag is determined by parsing the URL. In
the case it would be "tech" and not "apple." This seems to me to lead to
- Some tagging systems support spaces. How would spaces be supported
in this case? My assumption is through replacing spaces with "+", but this
is not explicitly stated.
- URLs are not the most convenient encoding for non-English languages
- Their is no guarantee that the apparent tag (the one displayed to
the user) and the real tag are the same. This defeats the peer pressure that
- No guidance is given as to whether or not having different link text
and tag value is considered bad form.
Have these things been addressed and are just not mentioned in the wiki or
am I just not getting it?
