Actually, (exaggerating a little) I'm only interested in typed links
if there is some mechanism to associate link types with some sort of
ontology. For example, if link types can be related to properties in
some sort of RDF/S schema. Maybe link types should actually be URI
references, and could thus be penetrable to agents or some other sort
of intelligent assistants.
