I asserted originally that I'd seen it on the changelog for Opera 9. I
went back and checked, and there it is under the "HTTP" heading:

I assume they're supporting it for linking to stylesheets.

Mozilla seems to support or have supported the header for use in its
"link prefetching" thing, too:

Some quick searching about also suggests that Mozilla supports it for
referencing stylesheets too, though I've not had time to test that.

With two browsers supporting it, I don't think it can really be
considered "irrelevant". See also my reply to Lukas Leander Rosenstock.
