I frequently use XLink simple links, and to me, the greatest benefit
is the ability (using XPointer) to link to a specific region (for lack
of a better word) of an XML document without having to modify the
document as you do to use a fragment identifier in HTML.

This linking is independent of display (as it should be), but can be
used to by an XSLT stylesheet to generate suitable HTML links.
