I don't believe rel-tag is an incorrect use of 'rel'.  @rel="tag"
means that the page being linked to is a tag for the current page.
The linked page should ideally contain a definition of what the tag

Another @rel value that is more similar to the @rel="nsfw" would be
@rel="no-follow", which is trying to express an opinion about the
linked page rather than describing the link relationship.

My own opinion is that a rating is more like an hReview, but the
semantics don't correspond too well.
