I've read all the FAQ pages, and maybe I'm just being dense, but can 
someone explain to me the difference between a hyperlink that should 
include rel-tag and one that *shouldn't* include one?

The microformats wiki states:
> By adding |rel="tag"| to a hyperlink, a page indicates that the 
> destination of that hyperlink is an author-designated "tag" (or 
> keyword/subject) of the current page.
> rel="tag" is specifically designed for "tagging" content, typically 
> web pages (or portions thereof, like blog posts).
> rel="tag" is NOT designed for "tagging" arbitrary URLs or external 
> content.
So, if I apply rel-tag, am I saying that this is an important link?

Am I missing something?
