Are they? In the absence of a DTD (or schema), it's difficult to check
such things fast. But admittedly the prose in the current draft says:
"When this module is selected, the link and meta elements are added to the
Structural and Text content sets of the Structural and Text Modules. In
addition, the elements are added to the content model of the head element
defined in the Document Module."

This is well hidden - it is not mentioned in the descriptions of the
Structure and Text modules as far as I can see.

Anyway, it looks rather redundant to allow such syntax _and_ have
some ad hoc syntax for doing the same thing with the 'about' attribute.
