A spec seems easy to write: "If there is a <link> element with the link type
"edit", then the URL of the first such <link> element gives the page the user
is intended to use to edit the contents of the page."

I would say it shouldn't apply to <a> because it is much more work to scan
every <a> than to just scan the <link> elements.

My recommendation would be to add a wiki page to the universaleditbutton.org
wiki that describes the above, then remove the current page that talks about
the weird MIME type (since that's clearly bogus, the page doesn't have that
MIME type at all), and register "edit" on the current registry.

Finally, document implementations (as in, consumers) and usage (as in,
producers) that use this feature, and detail their usage numbers.

I'll mark this REMIND for now. Please feel free to reopen if there is evidence
that this is getting traction. If it doesn't get traction in due course, I'll
eventually WONTFIX it instead.
