We (Open Connectivity Foundation) would like to register a new link relation to use in a forthcoming specification, but the document won't be published until later this year due to being in IPR review.

Is there any way we can reserve or pre-register the new term before the document is published? For example, can we provide a paragraph or two in a short informational ID?

Best regards,


Relation Name: ruleinput
Description: The target resource provides a value to be used as the input to a rule resource which is present at the link context.
Reference: OCF Core Specification (TBD)
