[webkit-dev] HTML5 & Web Links (RFC 5988)

Now that RFC 5988 is a proposed standard [1] and HTML5 references the
"Link:" header [2], has anyone plans to introduce such support into
WebKit ?  It seems like a straight forward behavior to adopt.  At
minimum, the CSS stylesheets specified in the Link: header would be
inserted, in order, between the user agent stylesheets and the
document's stylesheets.

Are there any implementation issues that one could imagine with this RFC?

There are some obvious interoperability questions until enough
browsers sufficiently support this feature.
