Has there been any talk of adding a @show attribute, similar to the one 
defined by XLink[1] (maybe only with "new" and "replace" as accepted 
values), to the <a/> element? I think it is natural for the author of a 
document to specify whether a hyperlink target deviates from the flow of 
the document. Adding @show only to <a/> would make its role clearer, and 
justify <a/> being in the spec at all.

Just a thought.
