What my input document is going to have nodes that look something like:

<resource xlink:href="products.xml#product001"
xlink:arcrole=""; ...>

The ONLY thing I know is that I'm not going to get anything more complex
than a bare XPointer to a node with an ID. It could be in the input file
or it could be in an external file. 

To do anything like what you suggest would require a bit of string
manipulation (although granted its not that hard).
