           Summary: link type "external" either not useful or
                    underspecified
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#link
                    -type-external
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: julian.reschke@gmx.de

The current definition reads:

"The external keyword indicates that the link is leading to a document that is
not part of the site that the current document forms a part of."

How is this useful? What's the definition of "being part of a site"? I assume
it's different from "being on a different protocol/host/port"? Who is using it?
