I think the real problem is that XLink as currently conceived has a lot of
presentation semantics. In XML I usually represent relationships using
database-style foreign keys rather than XLink-style URLs, and I regard it as
a function of the rendering process to translate these foreign keys into
navigable hyperlinks where appropriate.
