Re: service link rel registration

I agree that other formats are possible (and unlikely to be worse), but
I don't see the harm in reserving rel='service' for AtomPub service
documents. If you come up with a better mechanism/format for doing
service discovery then it would be better to distance it from the
application/atomsvc+xml document type by using different link relations.
"Distancing" future service document formats from
application/atomsvc+xml documents is link/@type's job, not link/@rel's.
That's what link/@type is for, and it's perfectly capable of expressing
the distinction. I see no benefit in, nor any reason to limit the scope
of the service link relation.
