Very unlikely to attend, sorry.

  Agreed, linking outside of the document is not something which
need action at the parser level, so it doesn't need to be specified
in the core XML specification. It is then fine to point to other
specs in the area, and XLink is the best answer from that POV.

  Sounds reasonable, though I wonder about implementations.

  Internally libxml2 preserves the old xi:include element
so the attributes can be found (and as well as boundaries of inclusions
when people need to roll them back). But I'm surprized to suggest
the existence of a "root included element" especially as part of
our charter, to me that doesn't exist, it may exist but people
will include well balanced chunks or even pure text, and I'm not
sure you could even guess in advance if those attributes would be
preserved or not. I find that confusing.
