The issue is whether XLink should be designed in such a way as
to allow HTML <A> and <LINK> elements to be XLinks as they stand,
with no syntactic changes.  At the moment, XLink doesn't allow that,
which buys XLink a significantly cleaner design, but there is also
a reasonable argument that HTML hyperlinks should be viewable as 
XLinks and that XLink should do whatever it takes to achieve this.

It's not an easy issue at all. -Tim
