The GROUP expresses an assertion that the docs identified in the 
DOCUMENT elements should be processed in parallel with this one because
they contain links which involve this one.  Remember, an EXTENDED link is 
not necessarily one of its own resources.  So the intent would be, I'd 
think, that you'd read the docs in the Extended Linking Group thus 
identified, and if one of them had an xlink pointing at some element in 
your current doc, you might want to provide a visual indication of this 
fact so as to enable traversal to the other resources participating
in that link.

Clearly the explanation in that section of the spec is weak. - Tim
