On an unrelated tangent, this section caused me some initial confusion.

The single example given is:

   Note that link-values may convey multiple links between the same
   target and context IRIs; for example:

       Link: <>; rel=index;

I think it would be better to split this into multiple examples to show IRIs
being used as relation types, and another showing IRIs mixed with registered
values. As it stands, it could be mistaken that this forms a single value:


Perhaps the first use of an IRI in this document should be:

       Link: <>; rel=index;
