 thank you for your comments on the XLink CR specification.
I case you didn't already got an answer from the Working Group,
your comment have been taken into consideration and are now listed
in the XLink CR Disposition of Comments at:

 More specifically you raised the following issues:
   - Issue (remove-arcrole) which was rejected. While this looked like
     an interesting simplification, simple links can't have both an arc
     role and a role for their remote  resource if we don't have two
     separate attribute names.
   - Issue (remove-title) which was rejected. The Working Group looked
     at the possibility of removing title attributes, title elements,
     or both. There was clear support from the I18N Group for having
     title elements support in XLink. They are not mandatory, but it
     seems their support is needed, so the Working Group decided to keep
     the status quo.
   - Issue (change-resource-name) which was rejected too :-\. The Working
     Group looked at various name change (change "resource" to "local",
     change "resource" to "local" and "locator" to "remote", change
     "resource" to "here" and "locator" to "uri", ...) but this ended
     up being considered a taste issue, and there was no consensus to
     change the syntax in that direction at this point.

Would those issues been raised during Last Call, then it would probably been
easier to make some of those changes, thanks anyway for your suggestions.
Could you indicate if you accept the Working Group decision on this issue ?

  thanks in advance,
