I am forwarding some more of Ian's comments with his permission
though he says his comments (especially the last bullet point) 
should not be considered binding without more context.

My take is this:

  * When we announce the purpose of a URI, we shouldn't change it  
lightly.
  * /TR/xlink was originally defined to be for XLink 1.0
  * We do have suggestions for multiple latest version uris:
    http://www.w3.org/2005/05/tr-versions
  * Seems ok if you want to change the purpose of /TR/xlink to do so  
in the next edition of XLink 1.1, with clear mention that XLink 1.0  
still available at the dated URI. I don't recommend minting /TR/ 
xlink10 since there won't be any more of those anyway.

I'm ok to leave as is unless there's a big demand to change it. And if  
there is a demand to change it, I want to see whether there are any  
issues that might arise, which is why I sent a note to the staff.

I'll sit back and wait to hear from you.
