Looks like Gavin already registered it on 5 November 2010, so we're
all set in that regard.

>> I'm returning to this work now, and I see that folks have been quiet about this since I posted my plan. Here's how I'm going to proceed:
>> Step 1: I will add beforeload to prefetch & icon rel types. Expect a CL for this soon.
>> Step 2: I will add a new subresource rel type, which will have higher priority than prefetch, otherwise be the same.
>> Step 3: We land bug 51941, which factors out the cache/LinkLoader.cpp from html/HTMLLinkElement.cpp
>> Step 4: We land the Link header parser directly (bug 51940)
>> Step 5: Add beforeload events to the Link header?
