"If it ain't broke, don't fix it."  If you've got a linkbase that works 
fine now, go with it - there is no need for you to use XLink except, as you 
say, as "a convenient transport representation."

Of course, in many senses, XML itself is "just" a "convenient transport 
representation," with data coming from databases, generated from the state 
of some process, or otherwise not existing natively as pointy brackets.

Of course, I think you knew this - but thanks for the leading question. (-:
