Yeah. The idea is that the parent page covers the child page

external table of contents or site map.

Perhaps "covers" would be a better name for this.

In this case then I'd suggest "static", meaning that the linked
resource is archived content which is not intended to ever be updated.

For my purposes, I really need the "covers" kind.
