Data Types and

      12:40 PM ... we need tests for new things like deprecating xlink, so
      that plain href should just work.

      12:40 PM Tav: No, that should still work, it's just deprecated.
      12:41 PM Amelia: There is specific error handling behavior if both
      are given, though, so there needs to be tests for that.
