By adding rel="tag" to a hyperlink, a page indicates that the
destination of that hyperlink is an author-designated "tag" (or
keyword/subject) for the current page. Note that a tag may just
refer to a major portion of the current page

There is? Where, on the rel-tag spec, is that made clear?

Unlike some, I have no allergy to "theoretical territory". Indeed, it's
a pre-requisite to science.

I am not planning on using rel-tag (especially not in hCard and
hCalendar) until this and some of the other issues with it have been
resolved. I suspect I'm not alone in that.
I also can't lay an egg, but I can tell when one has gone off ;-)
