My problem is that I can't accurately describe licenses with rel license.  
rel license applies to the page as a whole, but that doesn't work good for  
sharing. Often my own words are under one license, while I loan  
illustrations from others (under another license). I would prefer  
supplying license information as an HTTP header (ala pingbacks) rather  
than having it in the HTML.
