This specification defines the 'describes' link relation type that
allows resource representations to indicate that they are describing
another resource.  In contexts where applications want to associate
described resources and description resources, and want to build
services based on these associations, the 'describes' link relation
type provides the opposite direction of the 'describedby' link
relation type, which already is a registered link relation type.
