1. The user agent can use the links to pre-fetch webpages to reduce download
    time.

2. To view all the pages in a site, one can start at '<link rel="first">'
    and follow '<link rel="next">'. Or one can start at '<link rel="last">'
    and follow '<link rel="prev">'.

3. W3C's "Web Content Accessibility Guidelines" 1.0 requires that the
    '<link>' elements be provided for "Double-A" Conformance
    <http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/#tech-use-metadata>.

4. Mozilla Firefox <http://mozilla.org/products/firefox/> with the Link
    Toolbar <http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/more-info/linktoolbar> makes
    the '<link>' elements available to the user.
