The several million existing users of rel-tag are sufficient  
justification for me.
If your second party website (the blog hosting service) is not  
sufficient eg wordpress, blogger or livejournal), and you can't find

little stumped. What is the actual objection here?

You could put rel="tag nofollow" on them if it is SEO linkjuice related.
