The “service-meta” link relation type is used to link to available metadata for the service context of a resource. Service metadata is any kind of data that may be of interest to existing or potential service users, with documentation/description only being two possible facets of service metadata. The target resource is expected to provide a service description that is primarily intended for machine consumption. In many cases, it is provided in a representation that is consumed by tools, code libraries, or similar components. (Internet Draft wilde-service-link-rel: Link Relation Types for Web Services)
