I think we may be extending the semantics of rel-tag beyond  
usefulness here.  I don't think every open-ended list of grouping  
terms should be considered tags.  Another similar example is hCard  
departments.  Should those be using rel-tag too?  I think there's  
actually a subtle semantic difference between tags and other grouping  
terms, though I'm not sure exactly what it is.  Regardless, this is  
apparently not a point of consensus yet, and I'd suggest we proceed  
without genre for now, intending to add it later when rough consensus  
is reached, and still have a useful microformat before then.
