Hi

These was a discussion about this kind of thing on the syndication list [1], I
suggested something like this in (X)HTML files:

<link rel="syndication"
  href="rss100headline.rdf" type="application/xml"
  title="RSS 1.0 Headlines" hreflang="en-gb" />

<link rel="alternate syndication"
 href="rss091headline.rdf" type="application/xml"
 title="RSS 0.91 Headlines" hreflang="en-gb" />

<link rel="alternate syndication"
  href="rss090headline.rdf" type="application/xml"
  title="RSS 0.9 Headlines" hreflang="en-gb" />

There is also the practice of using rel="meta" to reference a metadata
file for a specific document.

Perhaps a rel="meta index" or something that linked to a file that listed
all the RDF metadata files for a site? This file could be in quite a
simple format like RSS 1.0?

I agree that a standard for doing this kind of thing is needed.
