I don't understand the purpose of these flags; it sounds like you're 
trying to disallow use of the other link relations (those not mentioned 
above) in HTML.

For instance, why disallow "version-history", defined in RFC 5829? Why 
would anybody want to define a link relation and *not* have it be usable 
in link/@rel? Could you please clarify?

(Also, I believe "Application Name" is supposed to be unique, so it can 
be used as identifier).

Best regards, Julian
