Just a follow-up for anyone developing this further. What do you think about using an existing link relation type for bitcoin? "payment" seems to be about right...

So a link might look like:

<link rel="payment" href="bitcoin:1NS17iag9jJgTHD1VXjvLCEnZuQ3rJED9L" />


Relation Name: payment
   o  Description: indicates a resource where payment is accepted.
   o  Reference: [this document]
   o  Notes: this relation type registration did not indicate a
      reference.  Requested by Joshua Kinberg and Robert Sayre.  It is
      meant as a general way to facilitate acts of payment, and thus
      this specification makes no assumptions on the type of payment or
      transaction protocol.  Examples may include a web page where
      donations are accepted or where goods and services are available
      for purchase. rel="payment" is not intended to initiate an
      automated transaction.  In Atom documents, a link element with a
      rel="payment" attribute may exist at the feed/channel level and/or
      the entry/item level.  For example, a rel="payment" link at the
      feed/channel level may point to a "tip jar" URI, whereas an entry/
      item containing a book review may include a rel="payment" link
      that points to the location where the book may be purchased
      through an online retailer.
