One that came to my mind is metalinker:

It's relevant to
 "Input to decision to buy, download, or read"
 "Links to related documents (prev/next in series, translations, etc)"

It's mostly information about checksums and mirror sites for reliable
bulk download:

"Metalink is an open specification that harnesses the speed and power of
peer to peer networking, FTP, and HTTP with a single click.

For users and content providers, Metalink makes things simpler, faster,
and more reliable."

I haven't studied the P2P aspect of it closely.

The hook it rides on is MIME types. (application/metalink+xml)
hmm... not registered.
