> On page 87 of the G2 implementation guide I see this definition "The
> item or resource can be used as additional information [...]".
> This first one is more restrictive : it implies that the related item is

> Hereby, I ask the IPTC for clarification about the intent of this
> Basically, I have documents that I'd like to link to because they might be
