While this is perfectly unexceptionable, I still think the LINK
element makes a better vehicle for the identification of links to
other retrieveable objects. 

Can you explain what advantages your last line has over the LINK 
equivalent? (Apart from the fact that for some weird reason no 
browser implements LINK yet :-). What software implements DC 
metadata?
