Hi,

About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml2-20060726/mod-meta.html

The specifications says:

	"User agents should enable activation of links and the 
	retrieval of link targets."
	
- What does that mean to "enable activation of links"?
- Does that mean it should do prefetching of resources in some case?

	"Since link elements may have no content, information 
	from the rel and title attributes should be used when 
	labelling links."

- It would be better to avoid normative language (here a MAY), when it is not used for its normative meaning. A suggestion.

	" Since link elements can be empty (no content), information 
	from the rel and title attributes should be used when 
	labelling links."

	- What is the meaning of "Embedding, Events, Forms" attribute module on an element which is not supposed to be rendered?
	- Emphasize the use of  link at any level of the document not only in the "head" element
	
	Example
	http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml2-20060726/mod-meta.html#sec_23.5.1.
	
	it will be more practical instead of this :
	
	<html xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">
    <head>
      <link about="#q1" rel="dc:source" href="urn:isbn:0140449132" />
    </head>
    <body>
      <blockquote id="q1">
        <p>
          'Rodion Romanovitch! My dear friend! If you go on in this way
          you will go mad, I am positive! Drink, pray, if only a few drops!'
        </p>
      </blockquote>
    </body>
  </html>
	
	to do this
	
	<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2002/06/xhtml2/"
	      xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/"
          xml:lang="en">
      <h property="title">Books and Quotation corner</h>
      <blockquote id="q1">
        <p>
          'Rodion Romanovitch! My dear friend! If you go on in this way
          you will go mad, I am positive! Drink, pray, if only a few drops!'
        </p>
      <link about="#q1" rel="dc:source" href="urn:isbn:0140449132" />
      </blockquote>
  </html>
