I don't know too much about class=, but I can see an argument that type=
might be redundant on relations. However, given that it is in such
widespread use, I guess this is a bigger debate to have.

Right now, I'm more concerned about which of these patterns is better:




The first one has the advantage of following the X=Y, Y=Z tag hierarchy
convention, the second has the advantage of re-using tags that have long
been adopted for nodes.
