Hi James,

some feedback:

- you may want to talk about what kind of processing of the link target 
happens, such as: is the server allowed or even required to check the 
target's existence (thus can LINK create "dangling" links?) If it does, 
an example would help (status code etc)

- clarify whether an anchor parameter should either be ignored or be an 
error

- you and I know that success could be 200 or 204, but if you don't have 
it at least in the examples, at least some people will be confused (and 
argue whether it should be 201 :-)

- is it an error to try to remove a link that doesn't exist? What if I 
try to UNLINK one existing and one non-existing one?

Best regards, Julian
