    send them to yoursite.com, no need for link to index.html.

    Yep, just the domain root for the home page.

    You need links to your subpages as well though. All links just pointing to home page isn't natural.

    Keep a consistency - all ways one or the other

    no need to ever use the index.html; all you ever need is the /.

    Use the root link, links pointing to the /index.html are not a good idea, can cause some duplicated content issues, losing a lot of the benefit. Push links to your internal pages as well to strengthen the overall domain, ensuring that your link building campaign also appears more natural.
