Re: Link extensions-related: link availability/expiry?
There currently are no such extensions defined anywhere as far as I
know. A few years back I proposed a 'expires' extension element for
Atom entries that didn't get any traction. It would be a simple
matter, I think to define a pair of notbefore and notafter attributes
for the atom:link...
<link rel="..." href="..."
I would have no problem including these in the link extensions spec if
the supporting use cases are sufficiently generic.
However, it might make more sense to define these as extension
elements to the link or entry... hard to say for sure without knowing
more about the specific use case and how the your entries are being
