Hi Sam,

I'm not convinced that throwing everything into a single document will 
be helpful; draft-brown-versioning-link-relations tries to focus on a 
small set of things, and, as Jan's feedback shows, it's non-trivial to 
get even those things right.

Do you have any *specific* comments with respect to the relations that 
it proposes?

Best regards, Julian
