+1, perhaps an xhtml document with the <link> elements in the <head>?

Also, I think it might make sense to keep links with relations defined  
by the Atom spec (alternate, related, self, enclosure, via, edit, edit- 
media, first, previous, next, last) in the Atom documents and just  
move our custom link relations to this new document. The server  
doesn't use many of the Atom links anyway, and when it does they tend  
to be used quite a bit (ie, "edit").
