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.
