I see section 5.5 is slowly growing, with additional attribute types for
linking ('Meta', 'Prefetch', etc.) being added.  Last year I was looking
into how best to use the <link> element with various browsers, including
Mozilla[1], and suggested the following five as potential new ones:

Parent
    Refers to the document above the present document in a hierarchical
    collection of documents.
First
    Refers to the first document in a linear sequence of documents.  May
    be used in conjunction with "Next", "Prev" and "Last".
Last
    Refers to the last document in a linear sequence of documents.  May
    be used in conjunction with "First", "Next" and "Prev".
Search
    Refers to a document for searching material related to a collection
    of documents.
Author
    Refers to a contact URI for the document author or authors.
    Typically this may be a "mailto:" URL.

Is there any chance they could be looked into for possible inclusion
within XHTML 2.0?

Thanks,

Dave
