At our F2F meeting yesterday, the TAG discussed [1] the HTML WGs comment 
below. The TAG resolved to make the following change around the 
reference to the xlinkScope-23 in Section 4.5.2:

    "RESOLVED: add that XLink is not the only linking design that has 
been proposed for XML, nor is it universally accepted as a good design. 
See also TAG issue xlinkScope-23"

Please could you indicate whether this adequately addresses the HTML 
WG's comment.

Many thanks,

Stuart Williams
On behalf of W3C TAG.
