           Summary: potential conflict between Link: and <link> semantics
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#linkTypes
        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 decision on ISSUE-27 has resulted in a state where the semantics of link
relations may depend on where they appear in (Link: HTTP header vs HTML
content).

Minimally, the spec should clarify that there's potential for conflict, and
explain that the semantics of link relations appearing in the HTTP Link header
field are defined by RFC 5988 and the IANA link relations registry, not the
Microformats Wiki.
