We have some significant problems with using @rel=~'vote-for', which  
IMO, keep us from ever using it:

1. The original spec of vote-links erroneously specified that the  
vote-links link relationships should be on the @rel attribute.  
There's content on the web (which will never go away) that uses this  
construct. So, using @rel='vote-for' is not compatible with past  

2. Using @rel and @rev for different meanings is not future proof. It  
is highly likely that future versions of HTML will drop @rev.
