Could you elaborate how one could use Link header to prevent information
In cases where one user sends a "http://..." URI to another user in e.g.
plain text email message how can a Link header prevent loss of
information when compared to "webcal:" URI?
We already have "+xml" suffix for mimetypes, perhaps we should also have
"+subscription" or "+feed"? Or did you mean that similar information
would be encoded as Link header?
