Wow!  Nice!  You may want to make it allow standard rels (like home)
that are not microformats... it flagged some of my other stuff too
(like rel=comments), but that's part of what it's supposed to do I
guess :)  Out of curiosity, what license is on the code?  If it's ok,
it might be nice to use some of it to parse this stuff in JS in my own
