Atom has a document-level hyperlinking element with link types? I thought 
the linking in Atom was from individual feeds, not from the whole 
document.

If the linking in Atom is indeed from the whole document, such that it 
makes sense to have it apply at the HTTP level, and if those relationships 
aren't compatible with HTML's, then we have a problem -- you can easily 
imagine a CDF situation with mixed Atom and HTML with Link: headers, and I 
can't see that either registry would "win" over the other. This would 
imply that HTTP would need yet another third registry for disambiguation.
