For an in-the-document-entity solution, it doesn't seem so bad to have an
NMTOKENS attribute that contains pairs of tokens (that admittedly are only
"pairs" implicitly).  XML processors already have to tokenize these
attribute values, right?  You could have something like this:

<!ATTLIST whatever
    xml-linkatts NMTOKENS #FIXED "href locator foo bar etc1 etc2"
    ...
