 [attachment:36084.3.diff] adds unit tests to cover a few different uses of
 `get_image_send_to_editor()`. The patch in [attachment:36084.2.diff] fixes
 the breakage in the third test,

 In my tests, this restores the previous behavior for the `rel` attributes
 on links to media. However, I would caution that changes to
 `wp_ajax_send_attachment_to_editor()` could reintroduce this issue by
 changing the `$rel` value being passed to `get_image_send_to_editor()`.
 From what I can tell, the fact that `rel` attributes were only being
 applied on links to attachment pages was not intentional (but I don't know
 the full history), so relying on that attribute for plugin behavior should
 be considered fragile from my opinion.
