Turns out this was indeed addressed in this draft:

"Applications that don't merit a registered relation type may use an 
extension relation type, which is a URI [RFC3986] that uniquely 
identifies the relation type. Although the URI MAY point to a resource 
that contains a definition of the semantics of the relation type, 
clients SHOULD NOT access that resource to avoid overburdening its 
server." --
