I would like to re-open this issue, because pronunciation lexicons are very
important in speech-enabled user-agents. As you know, Text to Speech (TTS) is a
key enabling technology in the field of accessibility.

I added a short proposal in the proposed list of "rel" extensions (named
"pronunciation"):

http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/RelExtensions

Please note that the next generation of the EPUB electronic publication
standard (due to be finalized in 2011) supports both (X)HTML5 and PLS, but the
"link" / "rel" mechanism is not used, because EPUB applies pronunciation rules
globally for the publication, not at the HTML file level (a single publication
usually contains several XHTML files).

Looking forward to comments.
Regards, Daniel
