I wonder if maybe there'd be a way to establish this a little more solidly
as a means of providing metadata about links and inclusions. XLink already
provides some metadata, but I suspect we're going to find more places where
extra information about a link might be useful, and where they might be
useful across multiple applications.
The stylesheet example here is a good one. Edd also noted digital
signatures, and I suspect there may be more lurking out there as eventual
