I'm 100% with Norm.  I want the markup to explicit and 
self-documenting, as opposed to off in the PSVI which you only compute 
by fetching another (potentially large & complex) resource and 
processing it.  I have grave concerns about the PSVI in general and its 
"implicit claims to be generic" in particular.

Yep, but I think links have special importance to the Web and should be 
manifest in documents used on the Web. -Tim
