Why require all links to be notified go in an h-entry body?

The majority of the use of this gem is for sending webmentions from sites that use h-entry, since it's expected that the receiver will go parse the page and find the h-entry on the sending site. Without the filter of only finding links inside the h-entry, this gem would end up sending a bunch of webmentions to pages such as links in navigation or the site footer, which is usually not the desired result.

I'm also using h-entry (well, hentry) -- I guess pinging nav links could be a lot more work if there are many of them? Or is there a fear that the nav link targets actually support webmention? I guess for nex/prev links, hmmm. Ok
