At the time, there was no way to separate the model from the view -- the concept of datatyping a schema simply didn't exist. Believe me, it's what everyone wanted. That said, there's no reason the substantive work done in XLink/XPointer can't be re-used to represent a better relationship modelling, with the presentation portions broken out to where they belong. --->Ben
