Heather,

is there a pointer to the changes? I mean I presume such a spec already existed before, and this is just a new version. At first glance, I have not seen anything in the document that stroke me as absolutely new

(Maybe one: that it is possible to use a URI for a 'private' link relation type, ie, not necessarily use a registered one. But that may have been available beforeā€¦)

In any case, I have added a reference to our reading list[1]

Thanks!

Ivan
