RubenVerborgh has just submitted a new pull request for https://github.com/w3c/dxwg:

== Indicate tokens through separate Link header ==
This pull request implements a suggestion [discussed](https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues/501#issuecomment-528813489) in #501.

Rather than requiring an extension to the `profile` link relation in order to support tokens, we introduce a new `token` attribute.

Pros:
- orthogonal separation of the token mechanism from other mechanisms
- does not require modifications to existing IETF RFCs and drafts

Cons:
- requires an extra `Link` as opposed to more compactly piggybacking on an existing one
