Could the XLink spec >itself become an XSLT include file? Er... just everything. One of the key points of XLink is that it is _not_ bonded to a particular style sheet language. XLink is useful in contexts where XSLT is either too much or too little, and provides common vocabulary that document developers can use to describe links whatever final processing the documents may receive. If your question is rephrased: "Is there anything within XLink itself that cannot be implemented by XSLT?" Then it might be received a little more kindly by those of us who work with XML in contexts where XSL (indeed style sheets, at times) is unnecessary.
