Questions

  • Is rel="tag" sufficient?
    • Probably not. There's lots of cases where there are preexisting directory links, which are not taggable. It would be nice to have the ability to make those explicit. - Ryan

Straw proposal

  • rel="directory" - thoughts by Tantek
    • indicates that the referenced resource is a directory which does or should contain the current page. Note that this has some resemblance to (but with important differences from) several existing HTML4 rel values: Contents, ToC, Index, Appendix. A directory implies something more though, perhaps aspects like pointing to a bunch of things at different locations/sites, perhaps one or more canonical orderings (whether alphabetical or by some other metric).
