Using the href as way of representing semantics is a very loose approach since it means that all should use the same link (that somehow represents a concept semantically), which is quite hard to achieve,

On a philosophical note - that assumes your experience of happy is my
experience of happy. :)

And yeah, I agree, it is hard to achieve.  But for the specific
problem of "mood", an ultimately objective topic, I think the
ambiguity of the actual meaning of a specific mood is acceptable.

Although, I think I missed your point first time I read it, so going
back to the topic at hand - would something like <a
href="yoururl/happy" rel="tag mood">happy</a> be better?
