I support this comment:

I suggest that the XLink working groups adds a section about markup language
integration conflicts and describes that in user agents that implement both
XLink and the language that causes the conflict XLink should be ignored. So:

 <xhtml1:div xlink:href="foo" href="bar">...

... causes no conflict as the DIV element in the XHTML 1 namespace has no
attribute HREF, but:

 <xhtml1:img src="foo" xlink:href="bar" xlink:show="embed"/>

... does cause a conflict and therefore XLink must be ignored in this case.

Kind regards,
