Ah, so LINK has been removed as a method to point to a style sheet? Why
does STYLE still exists then?

Furthermore, the XML Style Sheet PI has some issues which haven't been
worked out yet, I believe. Like linking towards internal style sheets as in:

   <?xml-stylesheet href="#local" type="text/css"?>
   <foo id="local">
    <bar/>
    :root{background:lime}
   </foo>

This hasn't been specified completely yet, I believe.

If XHTML 2.0 is dependent on the XML Style Sheet PI is that 
specification going to be revised to clarify open issues?
