pageSet is definitely meant to be a "seq" and pages can only be executed 
sequentially.

Do you mean this:

<svg>
    <pageSet>
        <page xlink:href="..\pages\pageone.svg"/>
    </pageSet>
</svg>

If thats what you mean the answer is no, but it is possible to link 
externally from within a page:

<svg>
    <pageSet>
        <page>
          <image xlink:href="..\pages\pageone.svg"/>
        </page>
    </pageSet>
</svg>

or this:

<svg>
    <pageSet>
        <page>
          <use xlink:href="..\pages\pages.svg#pageone"/>
        </page>
    </pageSet>
</svg>

If its the first option you are request, is there any particular reason 
why the second or third options would not be suitable?

Thanks,
Craig
