Dereferenceable or not, this seems to break the meaning a A.rel [1]:
"This attribute describes the relationship from the current document
to the anchor specified by the href attribute."

40% isn't a great hit rate either, though I'm actually surprised that
number isn't higher. I assume the other 60% are not providing
permalinks for comments.

Regards, etc...
