I'm not thinking so much about link semantics as I am about practical simple application of web infrastructure in XML, along the lines of "what's the simplest thing that could possibly work?". For example, in scanning http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/REC-xlink11-20100506/#linking-elements I don't see anything about the media type of the resource which is linked to, so there's no advertisement to the client what can be negotiated without actually trying a link. Also, I suppose you have to declare the xlink namespace in order to use xlinks. Something I was trying to avoid by going to the xml: namespace. But, you're correct, adding yet one more "standard" might not solve anything. Then again, it might catch on. Cheers, Peter
