I agree completely!
(esp. about low quality papers in "peer reviewed" journals)

That's why I took care to write "typically with editorial board and/or
reviewing process" vs "typically, self-publication"
and I omitted on purpose to say "peer reviewed".

I think arxiv papers should well go into the 1st category (REFS),
maybe actually any publication in the "shape" of a scientific paper,
while the LINKS should be there for other material (web pages such as
blogs, forum posts, and supporting files including graphics, programs,...)

Retrospectively, the distinction I wanted to suggest was rather concerning
the form/contents, than the "quality".
