In section 6.12 [1], the link type alternate should probably mention
that if used in combination with other link types, it implies that the
link is to an alternate form of the other link types involved.
Otherwise it disagrees with rel="alternate stylesheet", which is
defined later in the spec. [2]  As it stands right now, the current
definition of "alternate" makes "alternate stylesheet" mean a link that
is both a stylesheet and an alternate version of the document.
