The point is that xlinks major (fatal really) failing is that it forces attribute names on the vocabularies that use it. (Its bad enough that xml:id forces a name but the issues are worse with link attributes) Consider xhtml that came under a lot of pressure when it was being designed to use xlink links (which were being designed at the same time) but it would have meant that you could not use <img src="foo"/> it would have to be <img xlink:href="foo" xlinl:type="simple" xlink:show="embed"/> You could not go <a href="bar.html">.. had to go <a xlink:href="bar.html" type="simple">... architectural forms which pre-dated xlink from SGML had a much more extensive vocabulary that allowed you to impose linking semantics on _existing_ markup without the markup having to change. So you want to be able to say things like a/href is a normal link, img/@src is an embed link. But the recognition patterns might need to be more advanced such as Liam's somewhat extreme example.
