Yes, I cant use these links either. When I click the above link in my
live bookmark then nothing happens. It seems that firefox does not
support URN (I dont think any browser does support it) and this
confuses firefox into believing that the <link> tag is unusable.

There is an extension for URN's but that didnt make this work on my

File a bug I would say.
