The still-pending W3C draft on styling and XLink introduces a data model 
for hyperlinks that introduces the possibility of another approach.  An 
HTML-aware XML processor can represent the HTML links (or any other element 
known to have link semantics) as links in that data model, allowing them to 
be styled the same as XLinks.
