It is fairly easy to get a heterogenous system up and running across various organizations when XML 1.0 is the target, but once you say it has to be XML 1.0 + Xlink + Namespaces + XSLT ...and so on, you start running into roadblocks, escpecially when you don't have complete control of the various tools used across organizations. The fact that Xlink is not part of XML 1.0 is why I treat it as an enhancement vs. a critical piece of the system. In XML 1.0, entities are the most flexible and widely supported way to manage external relationships, so that's what I use.
