RE: Addendum to XLink 1.1 appendix C

I have a concern.

If we are going to add this, why shouldn't we add
a note on how to use XLink in SVG?  Or how to do
something else using XLink?

This sounds like something the I18N group should
put in some Note or document of theirs, not in
the XLink spec.  I fear this opens us up to requests 
to add all other sorts of "here's how you would do X
using XLink" examples to the base XLink spec.  Doing
this wasn't in our XLink 1.1 requirements document.

So while I don't have anything in particular against
the details of I18N's request, I'm not sure it's really
wise to start down this path at all at the going-to-CR
stage.

Am I over-reacting, or do others share my concern?
