Subject: <LINK> URL referenced by <A>


I think it would be advantageous to see a mechanism for referencing URLs 
specified by <LINK>s.  This is especially useful for managing a link that 
is referenced many times.  Changing the <LINK> would effectively change all 
the uses of the link.  In addition, it would encourage the use of LINK 
tags, which would improve the automated interpretation of the content and 
data structures of HTML sites.

Since links are allowed to have ids, this seems like the best referencing 
mechanism.

Thoughts?
