Not exactly. It could be in a context menu or some other "means". From

13.1. Hypertext Attribute Collection
cite = URI 
The value of this attribute is a URI that designates a source document
or message. This attribute is intended to give further information
about the element's contents (e.g., the source from which a quotation
was borrowed, or the reason text was inserted or deleted). /User
Agents MUST provide a means for the user to actuate the link./

href = URI 
/This attribute specifies a URI that is actuated when the element is activated./
Actuation occurs as the default action of a [DOM] DOMActivate event
for the element on which the attribute occurs (for instance as the
result of the user clicking on the associated element).
