this, with <link>s or anything else?

No, I just thought this particular requirement should be "should"
instead of "must".  Or should be dropped entirely, since it seems very
vague to me and I'm not clear what real-world scenario it addresses.
But it doesn't really matter and isn't worth spending time arguing
over if you don't agree.
