Agreed. Anything that HTML does that follows the lines of a more "meta" protocol such as HTTP should be a pure wrapper around that protocol, not an imitation or a fork. That is why I reject the current implementation of redirection with meta tags, for example.

Link relations are used outside the scope of HTML (see Atom, for
