An XLink processor is not required to ensure that all link targets 
exist.  However, an "XLink validator," which is not something defined by 
the XLink Recommendation, could certainly be built which would do such 
checking.  It would be like a link checker for an HTML document, something 
not required by the HTML Recommendation, but something that's certainly 
handy for a Webmaster to have around.
