But this has the problem that the author of a document has no control over
the meta information associated with the document.  Having meta information
specified in
the HEAD as an associated LINK'ed resource would seem to be the  correct
way to do this.

This is not the proper place to put meta-information about a document, but
perhaps
to put meta-information about the link itself ( whatever that might mean ??? )
