  The definition of the LinkTypes type in the XHTML M12N SE WD lacks the
following clause from HTML 4:

  Authors may wish to define additional link types not described in this
  specification. If they do so, they should use a profile to cite the
  conventions used to define the link types. Please see the profile
  attribute of the HEAD element for more details.

  For further discussions about link types, please consult the section
  on links in HTML documents.

The language of the text in HTML 4 is inappropriate, since the section
only states "Authors may use the following recognized link types..." not
that they are allowed to use custom link types, it only states that
authors may wish to do so. The paragraph about custom link types should
be added to the WD but changed so that custom link types are clearly
