I was with you right to this point.  I have exactly the opposite
inclination, namely that the xl:role is all I normally will need to
look at.  If I'm a schema validator, I'm going to special-case
situations in which there is only one resource with xl:link=the NS uri 
for the schema language I validate with.  Release 1 will probably punt 
all other situations.  I _really_, _really_ want to get to the point
where I can have the bare minimum to declare victory, namely:

<html xmlns:html='.../xhtml'>
 . . .
 <rddl:resource xl:type='simple'
 <rddl:resource xl:type='simple'
 <rddl:resource xl:type='simple'
 . . .

With respect, I don't ever program in Java, and I couldn't care less
about the details of the Java API:  please let's focus the design on
the document.
