Related notes:

x- tokens are used in an example of something not to do; maybe that's enough.
But the way x-www-urlencoded got widely deployed isn't discussed.

I wonder what the IETF current thinking on X- tokens is; there are none in the Atom spec. http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4287

Perhaps move reference to issue 51 from the body to the status section
"Similarly, the need may arise to use new values for individual fields such as rel attributes on HTML link elements (see [TAGIssue51]). "
