So any attempt to process an XHTML + HLink document must first merge two documents before processing can even begin? I can definitely see this being cumbersome in certain scenarios but can understand why the HTML working group has decided to inflict this on us. 
I only hope other working groups don't actually think this mess is a good idea since the last thing we need is making decisions like "should I resolve XIncludes before or after HLink resoultion which should occur before XML:Base is processed plus whatever other external remapping exist before applying my transform or query?" every time one wants to process an XML document.

	I am not sure I understand what kind of processing you want to make,
	however if for instance, I had to transform a document with a reference
	to a HLink mapping into the same document using XLink, I would probably
	follow an approach a la Schematron and write a stylesheet to generate a

	Rendez-vous à Paris.
