This specification defines Web Linking using a link format for use by
constrained web servers to describe hosted resources, their
attributes, and other relationships between links.  Based on the HTTP
Link Header field defined in RFC 5988, the Constrained RESTful
Environments (CoRE) Link Format is carried as a payload and is
assigned an Internet media type.  "RESTful" refers to the
Representational State Transfer (REST) architecture.  A well-known
URI is defined as a default entry point for requesting the links
hosted by a server.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
