Sorry about that, you are correct. In your email you said:

I read that REL tags, as REL values (e.g. home, next, previous,
bookmark, etc.) You ment allowing a rel attribute on any arbitrary
element, like <span rel="">.

You are correct, If you did that you would no longer be valid HTML4,
or XHTML 1.X
