I would suspect that mentor, trainer would suffice, with then
@rev="mentor" and @rev="trainer" providing the reciprocal

This would also help in that parsers could 'trust' @rev relationships
less than @rel (which I believe has been mooted in the vote-for
discussions), because the statement 'this person is my mentor' is
pretty irrefutable but saying 'this person is my mentee' probably
needs a bit of extra vertification.

I can think of a few people I'd like to link to with
@rev="object-of-lust", otherwise ;-)
