Are folks on this list planning to use XInclude when it arrives?


Basically, it seems like a replacement for external parsed entities, using
an XML-based syntax:

<sample xmlns:xinclude="...still unspecified...">
    <xinclude:include href="something.xml"/>

It doesn't require use of a doctype declaration, though it does require
support for namespaces.

So far, it seems to be advancing mostly under the radar, along with XBase,
a separate XLink spinoff.
