Well, it is interesting to see the proposed draft of XHTML 2.0, but
obviousy, I cannot discuss it.
What I can say is this:
XLink will open up new doors for CSS, and so it is advisable to start as
much converstion as you (we) can.
When I say "XLink module for CSS", I mean couldn't we apply styles to XLink
information? There are two lines of discussion: how XLink is to be
structurally handled in CSS, and how CSS is to be used in conjuction with/as
a styling method for XLink information.
Don't forget, we already have <link rel="alternative stylesheet" ...
XLink open things like this up so much more, by proving CSS DOM interaction.

Shame, I can't wait to see how this discussion pans out.
