ISSUE-119 (rel-repetition): Certain relationships take on a special meaning when repeated; other solutions may be cleaner [HTML 5 spec]

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/119

Raised by: Maciej Stachowiak
On product: HTML 5 spec

The "up" link relation, when repeated, has a meaning of multiple levels up, depending on the repeat count. It's been suggested that numbering (e.g. "up2"), names (e.g. "great-grandparent") or an attribute (e.g. level="3") would be better.

One specific point of concern: relList lists repeated relations only once, and therefore does not convey the semantics of repetition. The proposed solutions would avoid this.

The scope of this issue is to propose approaches for the relation types currently indicated by repetition.
