Yeah, it's really easy to forget to tag a link with noreferrer. There have been embarrassing news stories about some popular social networking sites who missed doing the current redirect hack on a link or two and got in privacy hot water. Similarly, it's useful for this feature to apply things besides links, such as iframes (e.g., advertisements embedded in a social networking site---see previously mentioned news stories). I can add this information to the use cases section if that would be helpful. Adam
