I assume you mean the Link: header. In that case I like the idea.

Well the client could even cache the document and only hit it once for the whole
server. Furthermore there would then be no need for the url to be in a 
location. It could be any resource whatsoever. 

That is the way that the "Web Access Control" system functions. See link from 
this page


Every resource has a link to those resources that require access.
Aslo see the curl examples
