Were you guys aware of the publication of a paper back in '96 on this
topic by Liam Quin and Murray Maloney? It pretty much covered this thread:

   IETF Internet Draft "Hypertext links in HTML", 
   Murray Maloney, Liam Quin, June 1996.
   http://www.groveware.com/~lee/papers/draft-ietf-html-relrev-00.txt

I believe the only browser that implemented a good portion of this was
NCSA Mosaic (if my memory serves me correctly...). IMO the only barrier
was the browser vendors' willingness to implement, not a decent spec.
