For in-line links they should be attributes, but for external links we
should allow users to associate child elements with a default set of
attribute values, e.g.

<XML-MLINK stored-in="locator LINK-END role LINK-END caption #CONTENT LINK-END">
<LINK-END locator="http...." role=source>Milton, J: Paradise Lost</LINK-END>
<LINK-END locator="#pointer" role=comment>Martin's thoughts</LINK-END>
</XML-MLINK>
