LWN.net Weekly Edition for November 21, 2013
I've been proposing this for some years now - http://www.gerv.net/security/link-fingerprints/
- and we even got as far as a draft RFC but it received a chilly reception from the IETF. :-(

Why stop with the IETF? This clearly falls equally under the W3C's purvue--at least, if you consider implementing it as additional attributes to the anchor tag rather than welding it to URI syntax. It seems like an almost ideal XHTML or HTML4.x addition.

I wanted to make it part of the URI syntax because then it could be used even in non-HTML
contexts - for example, in plain-text emails. But yes, perhaps if that's not going to be
achievable, we could get a significant proportion of the benefits by going via WHAT-WG or W3C
and adding a new attribute to HTML.
