I would vote for consistency of discovery of service endpoints between
HTML and YADIS over having something a bit shorter to type into web
page a few times.

Setting rel= to the XRDS service type also allows for HTML discovery
support for OpenID extensions without defining extra rel values. If
you really prefer "normal" HTML discovery without pointing to an XRDS.
