were you not able to follow the link on the IANA page?  

search for "link relations" on http://www.iana.org/protocols/

Or is googling preferred for those that work at google :-)?

The table of contents cover sections and their first-level sub-sections, pretty clearly.  Section 6.2 has a pretty obvious title, in the index.

"6.2.  Link Relation Type Registry  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10"

The overall these of this email seems to be that it's easier to edit a wiki, than to write a stable specification, and register the code-points in it in a formal registry.  Did we really need such an email to know that, or am I missing your point?
