Tim, quick note as I skim your mail (I need to read your other
comments along with the doc, but this one i remember without):

No. I chose the phrase "Xlink href" to mean "the href attribute in
the XLink namespace" specifically because some people seem to think
that the entire string "xlink:href" is magical. It isn't, it can be
wibble:href and work just fine if correctly declared. Conversely,
xlink:href can not work if you assign that prefix to some other URI.

The name of the attribute is, after all, href, right?

So, its  making a point. if that point is not clear then it should be
reworded, but not omitted.
