Update on Issue-27, was: ACTION-182 and Issue-27


here's an update on where we are with testing the IANA registry, as seen 
by one of the IETF-appointed Designated Experts:

1) There have been two registration attempts for link relations:

1a) "alternate" 
-- this currently is stuck because we haven't agreed on what the URI for 
the referenced document should be; Ian proposed 
<http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#rel-alternate>, while I 
think the registration should point to something more permanent, like an 
actual Working Draft. Advice from the HTML WG appreciated.

1b) "pingback" 
-- this currently is stuck in that the referenced document 
(<http://www.hixie.ch/specs/pingback/pingback>) may not satisfy the 
requirements in 
see follow up mails for a discussion about how to proceed.

2) There has been one registration attempt for two new pieces of 
application data in the registry 
For these we had several questions about the actual fields, their 
defaults, and what spec to reference 
For the technical questions, I'll start separate threads over here, 
because we'd like to see whether there's a WG consensus behind these 

Best regards, Julian
