FYI.. the "service" link rel has been added to the IANA registry.
Short version: rel="service" indicates a URI that can be used to

You may have seen
In the example above, the short name "enclosure" is used.
I was surprised to get a 404 error on
also results in 404.
RFC 4287 section 188.8.131.52 specifies  as a base.
Some of the values for @rel can be resolved using the following base URI
However, even using this base others give a 404 error.
Is there errata or some other RFC that specifies  instead of 
as the base?
A "good practice" stated in  is that
"Web representations should link to the information needed to support
automatic processing of those representations. "
So either the value of @rel is a URI/IRI, or it is a short form with
a well specified way to construct a URI/IRI.
Given that URI/IRI, it should be resolvable.
Are there any plans to provide a document that can be resolved for
every @rel value registered with IANA ?
I've mentioned some of this to W3C TAG
