Please consider this paragraph in REC-xlink-20010627, '5.1.3 Traversal 
Rules for an Extended Link (arc-Type Element)':


'When more than one locator has the same label, the set of locators with 
the same label are to be understood as individual locators, rather than as 
referring to an aggregate resource; the traversal behavior of such a link 
might be the same as for a link where all the locators have different roles 
and the appropriate arcs are specified to produce the identical traversal 
pairs.'


I believe it really means this (with all the locators having different 
'labels' instead of 'roles'):


'When more than one locator has the same label, the set of locators with 
the same label are to be understood as individual locators, rather than as 
referring to an aggregate resource; the traversal behavior of such a link 
might be the same as for a link where all the locators have different 
labels and the appropriate arcs are specified to produce the identical 
traversal pairs.'


If the Recommendation isn't in error, I must confess I don't understand the 
first paragraph.
