I am sorry that it has taken me this long to read the ID properly. Thank 
you for creating it - I was pleased to see the analysis you did last 
year included as the appendix. Try as I might, I can find no nits to pick.

On the timing/progress of the registration request for rel="describedby" 
- I'm going to drop a line to IANA and ask for an update. My /guess/ is 
that they're waiting for the version of the document that includes the 
definition to be made public (for those with W3C member access the 
current internal WD is at [1] - this is expected to be the PR draft 
(minus diff marks of course)). We're days, not weeks, away from making 
our PR transition request so it should all come together very soon I hope.

Appendix D (add #appD) is the relevant bit here and section 4 of the 
main document is all about linkage)

The draft goal is to provide a unified view on how to use the three methods for obtaining information about resources (discovery). The draft invents very little (an extension to Site-Meta allowing it to describe individual resources and not just the overall site).
