I would expect this to have the same behaviour as this XHTML1/HTML4 

<object data="chicken.xhtml" ... ></object>

i.e. donkey.xhtml would be loaded within object element (or the p 
element in your example).

target="_parent" or target="_top" would serve this purpose; but are 
these predefined target values from HTML 4 going to be defined for XHTML 
2, or is XHTML 2 only going to leave all values beginning with '_' as 
reserved and with no defined meaning?
