While this is true, would there be a benefit to using XLink syntax?  E.g.
the role attribute could be used to render a document differently depending
on the device, the context attribute would tell the XSLT processor to
include JavaScript for a new browser window, etc..  Then when (if?) the time
comes that there is an XLink aware browser (well popular support anyway)
then you're all set.

Just wondering out loud...
