Right. For many XMPP URIs / identities, we can simply use the standard
rel values. For others, we may want to define new rel values -- the one
I'm most interested in right now is rel="discuss" for XMPP chatrooms but
also useful for IRC channels, email discussion lists, web forums, voice
and video conferences, etc. (any venue where you can have a discussion
with multiple participants). I have an Internet-Draft half-written about
that on my machine here somewhere...
