Actually, the xlink is meant to serve that purpose: xlink:role="http://xml.opendap.org/dap/dap2.xsd" is meant to *unambiguously* say that the href is pointing to an OPeNDAP server. Can you elaborate on where the difficulty arises?

The <link/> element could be used to point to other relevant services such as FTP, SFTP, metadata conversion service, extraction/subsetting services, etc. Should we consider standardizing some of the URL title/keywords?
