Unless otherwise noted, I'm only speaking for myself on this list.   
This is why I don't like verbs in rel:

The rel attribute is short for relationship, not action.  Verbs  
describe actions.  Nouns describe relationships.  Most rel-  
microformats follow this convention.  The one that doesn't has this  
as the first open issue:


"nofollow indicates a behavior rather than a relationship"

I'll retract my suggestion to change from a verb to a noun and  
instead suggest changing from rel to class.  I think what we're  
describing is a class of link, specifically the class that allows us  
to acquire, not a relationship between two documents.
