So, please explain clearly why, or in what circumstances xforms:include needs 
more than one linking attribute?

It doesn't help the discussion if you tell me repeatedly that I don't get it. 
If I "got" the logic of your position I wouldn't be asking the questions in 
the way I have.

I would ask you to consider the possibility that the logic behind your 
position has not (yet) been adequately explained and so ask you to provide a 
better/fuller explanation.

Why are you denying that you used the word "need" only two paragraphs after 
referring to "our needs"?

In addition, don't you recall using "needed" and "need" in 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2002Jul/0158.html? In that 
document you also expounded on your disquiet about one linking attribute per 

Please take a little time to better express what you are trying so say. An 
example of where you believe an XForms element needs two linking attributes 
would help me to assess the validity or otherwise of the position you are 
putting forward.
