Which means what for an implementor?  It's great that everyone involved 
disclaims responsibility for what the correct implementation is, but it doesn't 
help implementors one bit.

In any case, we're basically no longer using the generic XLink implementation in 
Gecko for svg:a, because we discovered that in practice the two are pretty 
incompatible.  Which means we'll probably look into removing the generic XLink 
processor, since it's useless in practice when other languages reuse XLink.

Cheers,
