Request to add describedby to Atom Link Registry

From: Phil Archer <phil@philarcher.org>
Date: Thu, 05 Feb 2009 12:02:16 +0000

This is a request to make a new entry in the Atom Link Relations 
registry [1].

Attribute Value: describedby

Description: The relationship A 'describedby' B asserts that resource B
provides a description of resource A. There are no constraints on the
format or representation of either A or B, neither are there any further
constraints on either resource.

Expected display characteristics: None

Security considerations:
Descriptions of resources may be socially sensitive, may require
processing to be understood and may or may not not be accurate.
Consumers of descriptive resources should be aware of the source and
chain of custody of the data. Security considerations for URIs (Section
7 of RFC 3986) and IRIs (Section 8 of RFC 3987 ) apply to the extent
that describing resources may affect consumers' decisions about how or
whether to retrieve those resources.
