I may be misunderstanding the Change Proposal template. Do you consider 
this a change to "conformance classes"?

If this helps I can put concrete text into the details section, but 
given the fact that the editor will rephrase anything anyway, it didn't 
seem worthwhile. I think "treat it the same as on <a>/<area>" is 
sufficient detail to make the change.

However, it does not seem like the Change Proposal as written would have this effect. Specifically, the current spec language only suppresses Referer when following a hyperlink, but certain relations on the<link>  element, such as rel="stylesheet" or rel="icon", create an external resource link rather than a hyperlink:

Of course that's the intent. I'm really getting frustrated that people 
even consider I'm suggesting something else.

But you are right that the current description only applies to 
"hyperlinks" as opposed to "external resources", so I'll update the CP
