The "Effect on... link" column must either say "not allowed" if the rel value is not allowed on <link> elements, "hyperlink" if the rel value creates a hyperlink, or "external resource" if the rel value creates a link to an external resource.

The "Effect on... a and area" column must either say "not allowed" or "hyperlink".

For the "Status" section to be changed to "Accepted", the proposed keyword must either have been through the Microformats process, and been approved by the Microformats community; or must be defined by a W3C specification in the Candidate Recommendation or Recommendation state. If it fails to go through this process, it is "Rejected".

For more details, see the HTML5 specification. See also the Microformats wiki page on this matter.
