If you start back from the history of HTML 2.0 and work your way forward
up til today, you will find that all official HTML recommendations have
specified the <LINK...> concept for this.

Browser implementors with few exceptions[1] have decided to disregard
these parts of the HTML recommendations in favour of their own stupid
"hacks".

[1] Exception browsers that I know of to implement <LINK...> for
creation of local navigation tools is Lynx and NCSA Moscaic v3.0.
