Cyrus:

The I-D does not mandate how the link-relation type is to be used.

Authors can use these values in message bodies only if they like;
there is no requirement to use Link headers. They can create "paged"
output that emits as many (or as few) links as desired.

Basically, this does not change the number of links, just adds the
possibility of a shared understanding of the rel value used to
decorate those links.
