Dear

I would like to register the following relation type:

* Relation Name: identifier

* Description: A link with the "identifier" relation type indicates that
the link target is preferred over the link context for the purpose of
referencing.

* Reference: Van de Sompel, H., Nelson, M.L., Bilder, G., Kunze, J., and
Warner, S. (August 2017) Identifier: A Link Relation to Convey a Preferred
URI for Referencing.
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-vandesompel-identifier/

While this request is based on the 00 version of an Internet Draft, we
would prefer registration at this point because:

- There has been significant communication/promotion for the use of the
"identifier" relation type in a target community (scholarly communication).
See e.g. http://signposting.org/, http://signposting.org/identifier/, and
presentations at several conferences, including PIDapalooza (Reykjavík)
OR2017 (Brisbane), DPLAFest 2017 (Chicago), OAI10 (Geneva).

- There already are adopters of the "identifier" link relation type (see,
e.g., http://signposting.org/adopters/) and support is listed the
development plan of institutional repository platforms.

- The authors are committed to taking the I-D to RFC status.

Greetings

Herbert Van de Sompel
