XLink isn't meant for this.  Today, you would accomplish this with XML 
"entities" and normal XML processing.  There's a new Working Draft on a 
technology called XInclude (http://www.w3.org/TR/xinclude), which 
accomplishes much the same thing as XML external parsed entities, only with 
element syntax instead of a special entity-reference syntax.
