It's because the microformat does not define the meaning of
'@rel=vote-for', it just defines the meaning of 'vote-for'. The rel
(or rev) relationship comes direct from HTML. The pool of values for
@rel and @rev are shared as they are closely related attributes by
design (these values are not always appropriate in both directions,
So, the value 'vote-for' is definable as 'a positive vote for a
resource'. That's what vote-for (and vote-against and vote-abstain
with their respective definitions) *always* means when used in HTML.
The source and target of that relationship is what the @rel and @rev
attributes describe, not 'vote-for' itself, and that comes from HTML.
Hope that clarifies.
