Hello Chris, Simon,

It is an interesting thought. Allen's interval relations have much in
common with the spatial relations in the DE-9IM
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DE-9IM>. If it is useful to have Allen's
interval relations in the IANA link registry, it could very well be useful
to have that subset of spatial relations in the IANA registry too. I
understand that in order to do that, there should be an IETF or W3C
document explaining the nature of the link relation. It was possible for
Allen's relations because OWL Time is published by the W3C. The DE-9IM
relations are specified in a number of OGC and ISO documents (e.g
GeoSPARQL), but I guess not in any IETF or W3C document. So if there would
be a spatial ontology and if it were published as a W3C document, then the
IANA link registry could be extended.

I guess that if is useful to have temporal relationships available as link
relations, then for similar reasons it would be useful to have link
relations for spatial relationships.

I do wonder: are there any examples of how the temporal link relations
could be/are used in practice? That could give some insight into the
desirability of having their spatial counterparts registered too.

Greetings,
Frans
