I must take issue with your advice. "Federation" is considerably more than the interoperability provided by a hypertext link. "Federation" is esp. useful when applied to the field of Identity Management, yielding "Federated Identity Management." I have just reviewed and updated the Wikipedia description,
I hope you will see the sense of this distinction better now.
