Please consider making your proposal for a new link value on the Wiki instead
of in the bug tracker.

Some questions to consider: 

- What would a <link rel="canonical-human"> link to? You explained the
semantics of the "title" attribute but not the "href".

- Is it intended that this link relation should describe the page linked to, or
the page containing the link? If the former, wouldn't it be better to give the
page itself a way to say what person it is about? If the latter, it seems
inappropriate to use <link> instead of <meta>.

- How can we be confident that people would want to use this complicated
format, or want to use it in the first place
