Currently rel="canonical" (
http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/02/specify-your-canonical.html)
is not in the allowed set of link types listed at
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#linkTypes . Looking back
through archived posts, it seems that it was once briefly mentioned in
passing but there was no discussion regarding its addition to the spec.
Considering its usefulness, are there plans to add "canonical" to the
official list of accepted values?

Regards,
James
