If there is no particular relation, then it should not be <link>. The <link> element is for resources which are in specific typical relations to the current document.
I would mark it up like this:
<h1>Feeds for this site</h1>
<li><a href="status.xml" type="application/atom+xml">Status feed</a></li>
<li><a href="news.xml" type="application/atom+xml">News feed</a></li>
<li><a href="links.xml" type="application/atom+xml">Links feed</a></li>
Note the absence of rel attribute on the <a>: there is no specific typical relation between the current document and the referenced resources.
