Probabaly not a good idea, but it just occurred to me that XLink 
actually allows at least three URIs on a start-tag:

<img xlink:href="someURI" xlink:role="someOtherURI" 
xlink:arcrole="still another URI"/>

This doesn't solve the general problem, and it probably doesn't 
really solve the specific problem. Nonetheless, maybe it points the 
way somewhere.
