I was wondering if anyone can provide any information, or a pointer to previous discussion, about why the bookmark link relation can't be used with the <link> element .
The topic has come up recently on the IETF link-relations discussion list  where a new link relation has been proposed to encourage persistent linking . The proposed 'identifier' relation seems to closely resemble the idea of a permalink (a persistent link) that can be found in the definition of bookmark. If bookmark allowed use with the <link> element then I think there would be less of a demonstrated need for the new 'identifier' link relation.
Thanks for any information you can provide. I apologize if I'm restarting a conversation that has already happened.
