Thank you for taking the time to review XLink 1.1 and provide
constructive suggestions for how it might be improved. However, in an
effort to move the XLink revision forward quickly (Ha!), the Working
Group chose an extremely narrow scope for the changes in XLink 1.1:

In effect, only two significant technical changes are in-scope for
XLink 1.1, making the xlink:type attribute an application-level
default and making XLink href attributes IRIs.

Please accept my appologies if this narrow scope is a disappointment.
If XLink 1.1 inspires greater adoption, we might someday revisit XLink
for more substantive technical changes. At such time, we'd be happy to
consider your suggestions.

                                        Be seeing you,
