RE: Is XHTML a dead end?

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
 stylesheet to do the transformation (the exercise seems pretty trivial).
