Those are already in the spec, in fact. Except that they are not link
types, but new elements.
<navigation> is for site navigation.
<article> contains the content.
<aside> contains a sidebar.
<footer> contains the footer (specifically, <small> inside <footer>
contains the small print).
Thus we don't need link types, and authors can stop using "skip" links --
user agents can instead automatically skip anything that the user wants to
skip, without the author having to worry about adding in such links.
