Hmmm, why not? Microformats do already define, that the XXX attribute with the 
value of YYY does have meaning ZZZ. So in this case microformats has already 
defined that the rev attribute with the value "vote-for" has some special 
meaning. Why not define that the rel attribut with the value "vote-for" has 
another meaning?

It's not about redefining the rel or rev attribute. It's about redefining 
the "vote-for" attribute value if used with the rel attibute.
