There's some discussion of having a single relation registry for HTML, 
Atom, HTTP Link Headers, and other specs. This is currently proposed in 
Mark Nottingham's "Web Linking" Internet-Draft, and that states:

"Commonly-used relation types with a clear meaning that are shared 
across applications can be registered as tokens for convenience and to 
promote reuse. For example, "self" and "alternate" are registered 
relation types, because they are broadly useful." --
