I don't see anything in the XInclude draft that says anything aobut what
happens when the XPointer in an href attribute selects a point or a set
of points. 

I suspect the answer is nothing happens. A point is non-dimensional so
including it might not really mean anything. However, given the notion
of potential inclusion with ranges, I'm not 100% sure. It also seems
plausible that some informaiton item containing the point might be
included. It would be nice if a note in the spec could clarify this
matter.
