  Walter,

 the Working Group considered the issue, and decided it should not be 
included directly in XLink. It was considered it should be kept a 
separate mechanism. The feeling of the Group was that this should
be sent to the W3C as a NOTE from your company (and it seems other
companies from Working Group members were ready to support this 
submission to W3C).

  thanks for your proposal,

Daniel
