As with XFN, we need to get a basic spec proposal together that we're 
all fairly ok with, use it consistently, write/blog about it, then get 
the tools to support it (which, chicken/egg again, should happen 
automatically when there's a sizeable number of sites use it ... or it's 
a case of hassling people who're creating the extensions/plugins to 
include the link types in their work)
