Hmm, my immediate reaction was "well a <link> element is defined to be
equivalent to a Link: header so you could just use a .htaccess file to add
a Link: header to all your pages" when I realised that in fact that would
give us quite a neat way of moving the pingback information to the HTTP
headers, without really having two separate mechanisms per se.
Unfortuantely, the Link: header is a bitch to parse.
And as Simon says, in practice updating lots of pages isn't a big deal
really, blogs do it all the time anyway.
