beyond XRD change the cc: list as appropriate. ]

XRD <uri> seems to do exactly what the Link: header's anchor=
parameter does [1]. It would be nice if the two used the same token to
communicate this function.  As <uri> is not descriptive of the role
played by the URI, I recommend updating XRD to match Link:, by
renaming the <uri> element (or attribute, should you go that route) to
be <anchor>.

(p.s. I wonder if HTML5's <link> element should have an 'anchor'
attribute, for symmetry ...)
