I'm inclined to agree.

It doesn't seem unreasonable to provide something more specific than
"meta" in the rel value, in fact the microformats folks have defined
[1] a few terms here (and a few more appear in Atom [2]) some of which
could be immediately reusable, e.g.

<link rel="license"
      href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/1.0" />

The rev attribute can also be used in this way when the relationship
is reversed. (The type attribute, like title, is just an optional

I'd add that if it was felt useful to any more specific information
about the nature of the linked data, then the GRDDL mechanism [3] is
available, e.g. using embedded RDF [4].  But then that's getting to
the point where in many cases you might as well just embed all the
RDF...or let the agent get the linked RDF and figure out whether it's
useful for itself.
