On reading Bob DuCharme's article on "XLinks, Who Cares?" 
I am struck that he leaves out the argument that is to me 
a primary reason XLink isn't taking off.  Many of us use 
relational systems on the server that handle metadata 
relationships in tables.  Many of the tasks that an XLink 
database is good for can be easily handled with a table 
that contains URLs as database types.  

Maybe I am just getting foggy in my dotage, but do we 
need Xlinks if we use relational dbs and if so, for what 
other than perhaps a convenient transport representation?
