| I suggest that the source of our disagreement is that I see the
| REL values as contextual hints to the user, whereas you seem to
| see them as specific instructions to the browser, or as both.

As neither.  As semantic labelling for related sets of docs.

| I am wary of 'specific instructions to the browser' that imply complex
| navigation (i.e. beyond 'goto'), and do not see a need to standardize
| presentation-only behavior - nor does Murray, I think, as he repeatedly
| (and effectively) argues to allow creativity by browser developers.

No instructions to the browser, no presentation-only behavior (whatever
that means).  Just labelling.
