well said, and i agree that relations between "media resources" and
"description resources" should be represented and discoverable by standard
mechanisms. and btw, 'decries' so far is just a proposal but from what
i've seen nobody has objected, and all feedback i have received so far
said that there should be an inverse of 'describedby'. so i am encouraging
this group to have a look at
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-wilde-describes-link-01 and provide
feedback. if i don't get any pushback, i will submit this draft for expert
review better sooner that later, so that proper linking between resources
could be established based on existing standards, both for 'describedby'
as well as for 'describes'.
