I just discovered this:

[[
Now, you can simply add this <link> tag to specify your preferred
version: 

<link rel="canonical"
href="http://www.example.com/product.php?item=swedish-fish" />
]]

Perhaps worth updating the generic resources finding?
  ISSUE-53 genericResources-53
  http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/group/track/issues/53

It sorta goes against our advice on follow-your-nose and
self-describing web, but I guess it's not new information,
since we considered rel="nofollow" before.
