Which end of the hyperlink are we discussing?  The use, within a News 
story, of a specified concept from a specified taxonomy, or the 
description of this concept on some Web page?

The IPTC Standards (NewsML-G2, SportsML-G2, EventsML-G2, etc) are not
(X)HTML-based.  The Web page is, of course, (X)HTML.

The issue, as I understand it, is not what is legal within the News
story, but rather what is legal within the Web page.
