How do we talk about it then? This is not a rhetorical question either: 
rel-bookmark/rel="bookmark" looks just like rel-directory or rel-tag 
from an outside observer. The difference is providence.

I'm not sure where you would need to outside of values that are "user 
fillable". If they are user fillable and we are talking about them, yes.

If I say, the HTML "LINK" element, there's no question of where it is 
and where to look for it -- the phrase HTML "CARGO-SHIP" element will 
never appear in normal conversation about valid HTML documents. On the 
other hand: rel="credits", rel="home", rel="appendix", rel="references", 
rel="title", rel="chapter", rel="preface" ... are all valid reasonable 
things to say, some of which come from HTML and some do not.

Regards, etc...
