Yes, but that's a totally separate issue from arguing the XLink is too complex
and therefore we need a CSS alternative.

I have no a priori issues with adding linking information to CSS (although

  :not(:link) { link: url(foo); }

does trigger alarm bells), but I'd rather people did so on its own merits
rather than setting up bogus strawmen.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in 
human history, with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
