I think I agree with you. Although it is the possibility of using the 
<meta> tag, using "link" provides tghe advantage of being somewhat 
uniform across different representations, viz. "HTML" and  "HTTP". 
Probably we should mention in the text, as you suggested, that although 
the <meta> tag could be used, it will require more new specification 
compared with the use of <link>.

Thanks, khalid
