Hi all,

The specification uses the 'href' attribute for referring to external
content (p:document) or external locations (p:load, p:store, p:log). It
is also used in c:error and c:request elements. I wonder if this
attribute shouldn't be renamed to 'uri' which I think would a more
adequate name. 

In my view, the XProc engine just reads content from (or writes content
to) a location represented by a certain URI. When I see the name 'href',
I sort of expect some kind of a (HTML-like) hyperlink semantics, but I
think in XProc it is something more generic.

Regards,
Vojtech
