Hi Ian,

This registration is a bit unusual, in that you're registering using whatwg.org URIs, when the W3C -- an organisation that the IETF recognises as producing Open Standards --- as per RFC2026 -- is producing a specification that is substantially the same.

While whatwg.org isn't necessarily precluded from meeting the prerequisites of Specification Required (and therefore making registrations), we want to make sure that this isn't conflicting with ongoing W3C work.

As such I've CC:ed the W3C's liaisons to the IETF for their comment. 

Philippe and Thomas: this is a registration request for new app data fields in the link relation registry, established by <https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-nottingham-http-link-header/>;. In particular, I'm looking for a statement of whether this conflicts with current W3C work, represents W3C consensus, etc. 

Regards,
