This is a two way link as defined by XLink:

<people xlink:type="extended">

 <folk xlink:type="resource"
       xlink:role="http://dyomedea.com/roles/folk"
       xlink:label="aaron">
   <name>
     <first>Aaron</first>
     <last>Swartz</last>
   </name>
   <qualifier>freelance programmer</qualifier>
   <qualifier>website designer</qualifier>
   <qualifier>Internet standards developer</qualifier>
 </folf>

 <page xlink:type="locator"
       xlink:href="http://swartzfam.com/aaron/"
       xlink:role="http://dyomedea.com/roles/page"
       xlink:label="home"/>

 <home-page
       xlink:type="arc"
       xlink:from="aaron"
       xlink:to="home"
       xlink:arcrole="http://www.library.org/roles/home-page"
       xlink:show="new"
       xlink:actuate="onRequest"
       xlink:title="This is his home page"/>

 <authored-by
       xlink:type="arc"
       xlink:from="home"
       xlink:to="aaron"
       xlink:arcrole="http://www.library.org/roles/authored-by"
       xlink:show="new"
       xlink:actuate="onRequest"
       xlink:title="Aaron wrote this page"/>

Maybe that you can define links independently of their origin and
destination, within or outside documents themselves (RDF already allowed
this, XLink gives an alternative).
