A “link” element (<http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-sparql-XMLres/#head>) may
link to metadata of any type and format. Nothing in the specification
contradicts this potential.

But let us presume that every SPARQL “link” element will link only to
RDF/XML. Why, then, is it nonsensical to traverse the links?

If the DAWG adds passages concerning styling with CSS, one passage
should note the applicability of hypertext pseudo-classes to “link”

Note the direction of replies. Retitle replies when sensible. Do not
include me in the recipient list.
