Just an FYI... The IETF just approved publication of my "Additional Link Relations" spec as an RFC.. number is still pending.

This document introduces a handful of new link relation types including a few that I originally derived from OpenSocial gadget use cases. 

  rel="privacy-policy" is used to link to privacy policy resources.
  rel="terms-of-service" is used to link to use terms documents.

  rel="preview" is used to link to things like thumbnails, etc

Awesome! Thanks for bringing this up. We should definitely incorporate these.

​wiw, I believe that I had already began incorporating these in the early 3.0 rewrite that I checked in last spring. Depending on where things are at with 3.0 moving forward we should be able to leverage at least some of that.​
