Not a bug, but a suggestion.

Implement the Link-header and enable users to import stylesheets using this method.

Currently Gecko and Presto implement this and it seems to be very famous among their users.

Since this report was filed, Mozilla removed the support of Link in the meta element.

The HTTP-Header is still supported, just like Opera supports the HTTP-Headers.

Please use this report as a reminder to implement the Link-HTTP-Header in IE10.
