“to have” as you use it .ust denotes a relationship exists (as in “I
have a sister.”), but not which one. My fault, the question should have
been “What noun describes the IRC channel in relation to the web
page?”. For a feed, for example, this can be answered with „this is an
alternate representation of the content“.

A protocol attribute for <link> elements would be totally hilarious.
