It was indeed from that era. Consequently it was based on whatever the 
XHTML 2.0 drafts had for link types. The /1999/xhtml/vocab doc currently 
says "This is a vocabulary collection utilized by XHTML Family modules 
and document types" - does that mean its membership-criteria could be 
broader? eg. if any link types were in XHTML1 but dropped, should we 
still document them in RDF? Can we reflect in stuff from the HTML5 
eventually too?

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/html5/#linkTypes

for example, http://www.w3.org/html/wg/html5/#contact seems a useful 
relationship to have a name for.

cheers,

Dan
