This would also be useful to be used as bookmarklet.
Liferea ATOM/RSS Feed Reader has an option to bookmark URLs to online bookmarking services (e.g. Bookie), social networks (e.g. GNU Social and pump.io) and news websites (e.g. Slashdot); alas these entries are hard-coded into Liferea and, thus hardening on end-users to submit contribution to other services, let alone some services are decentralized (e.g. Bookie, GNU Social and pump.io) and may be available on different servers.
Allowing URIs with substitutions for Type=Link would ease this task and also on coding.
