If you implement just XLink, then you do what XLink says (for the linking layer) and do what some other spec says, presumably, for allthe other layers like formatting and interaction and so on.

If you implement just SVG, then you only know abou the links that SVG uses.

If you implement both, then at the intersection of the two specs you do what the integration of XLink in SVG does, for elements in the SVG namespace.
