Do you think? so the above example would translate as...
<http://someapp.com/> made <http://referencingpage.com/>
change that example to a vote link....
<a rev="vote-for" href="http://someapp.com/">I made this app</a>
your interpretation would translate as
<http://someapp.com/> vote-for <http://referencingpage.com/>
Is this correct?

There is some evidence to say that in the wild most authors use rev=made
