What about an xFolk link with a tag of <http://wikipedia.org/wiki/NSFW>? 
Should that imply that the containing page is not safe for work? Do the 
xFolk entries on unalog imply that unalog is about any of those tags? 
Here's my problem:

rel-tag is reusable. It applies to whatever contains it. Well, except 
under specific circumstances which are documented in the other formats 
in which it has been reused, then it only applies to a sub-container, 
which we didn't mark in a generic way.

I'm just looking for a generic scoping mark. ~D
