How RFC 5988 Link Relation fits Linked Data?

Hello,

I would like to ask for help with clarifying use of RFC 5988 Link
Relation in context of Linked Data.

In Activity Streams 2.0, which very recently became WPWD, we currently find:

* as:Link - Describes a link to a separate resource.
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/WD-activitystreams-vocabulary-20141023/#dfn-link
* as:rel - The RFC 5988 Link Relation associated with a Link.
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/WD-activitystreams-vocabulary-20141023/#dfn-rel

With some examples of their use available in:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/WD-activitystreams-core-20141023/#link

I must admit that their usage don't feel intuitive to me, at least from
my relatively short experience of working with Linked Data. I would
appreciate any help with clarifying how RFC 5988 Link Relation fits
world of Linked Data.

I also just noticed seemingly relevant issue in Mark Nottingham's
Internet-Drafts repository: https://github.com/mnot/I-D/issues/39
As well as this article from 2011:

Thank you in advance!
