While "type" is useful for things which result in GET requests, while
specifying several locally-relevant protocols I've run into the fact
that it's not so hot for anything that requires the client to include an
entity body in the request, or requires any other request protocol.
What would be useful, though perhaps out of scope for HTML5, is a way to
specify a *protocol*, rather than a response type, for a given link
relation. Then you could specify that this is an AtomAPI endpoint,
rather than that a GET request will return an atom+xml document.
