How the client uses the a[type] attribute is up to them, as the type attribute
is "purely advisory".  Using the type attribute in the way you've outlined is
permitted by the existing specification.  Your example does not suggest any
additional constraints, only suggesting best practice.  

While it may be good practice for a client to use the a[type] in the request
header, I can see how that implementation detail probably does not belong in
the HTML language specification.
