<link rel="alternate" ...> is used to provide alternate versions (for different media types, devices, languages, etc.) of the same document. Currently (Win2K build 2002100804) the <link> prefetching (bug 12274) prefetches these alternates. There is no reason to prefetch multiple versions of the same document; there is little chance the user will visit these alternate pages, and it increases server load significantly.
For you, darin.
