OK; the IANA link relations registry had pending (re-)registrations for 
these ones; I have updated the entries <http://paramsr.us/tracker/> 
accordingly, and will close the requests as "declined" once the spec 
changes.

All of these were already in the registry, as per Atom/HTML4.01, see 
<http://www.iana.org/assignments/link-relations/link-relations.xml>.

For these, we (== IANA link relations expert reviewers) did not have 
registration requests.

Some of these however are already in the registry:

contents
Refers to a table of contents.

start
Refers to the first resource in a collection of resources.
