Hey folks,

I had this action to look at the link relations we define in [1] vs. the 
ones defined in [2] to determine if they are consistent and, if not, 
what we should do about it.

The good news is that I don't think we need to do anything.  There are 
only a handful of link relations defined in HTML5 that are also defined 
in our vocabulary:

alternate, bookmark, help, icon, license, next, prev, and stylesheet

Each of these are defined in a consistent way.  The language is not 
identical.  We can make [1] have language closer to that in [2] if 
anyone thinks it is important, but at this point my recommendation is 
that we leave it alone.  Let [2] stabilize then decide if we need to 
make any minor edits.
