Well, at least i know many examples saying exactly that, but without using 
rel="vote-for". There are many pages out there trying to make the visitors 
vote for them. 

I dont' think that i myself will ever do something like that, i never will beg 
vor any votes! But who am i to disallow that for anybody else? So, if that 
makes sense or not is up to the author of that page, not up to me or the 
microformats team. The microformats team simply should define the semantics 
of that.
