If element <x> is a simple link and 'inline' attribute is 'true', you can 
point element <y> by specifying like following:

 <x href="#origin()">

For more detail, 

 <x xml:link='simple inline='true' href='#origin()'>

But this representation is no meaning  because inline resource is also
the same element <y>.

And, as shown above my example, before specifying XPointer, you must write
a connector(# or |).  Unless, that string is recognized as a URI. See XLink
draft '2. Locator Syntax'.
