At this point, personally, I'd drop coverage of XLink and XPointer. A paragraph seems reasonable. XInclude does get use in back-end processing, so I'd leave it in, most likely - at least as a sidebar in the entity processing section. It doesn't require a huge amount of space to explain in any case. -- Simon St.Laurent http://simonstl.com/
