SVG1.1 xlink: can xlink only be used with anchor element?

the xlink specification appears to indicate that xlink can be used  
with any xml element [1]

The SVG 1.1 specification mentions xlink in "URI reference attributes"  
section[2]
which may suggest but does not direct that xlink may only be used with  
anchors.

one proposed use case is: onEvent script is used to import data using  
xmlhttprequest

for this purpose title is (may?) not appropriate,
ie similar issue to alt and title in html,
one describes image, other describes linked resource.
