XLink url factorisation

I want to describe relations between elements of two xml files in a third
one, but I would prefer to define only once the url of each one.
FileA.xml is a collection of <EltA ident="a0"/>...<EltA ident="an"/>
FileB.xml is a collection of <EltB ident="b0"/>...<EltB ident="bm"/>
A simple solution would be like :
However, I would rather use extended XLink. Then, each FileA or FileB
element would be a locator :
<refElem ident="elemA0" xlink:type="locator" href="...FileA.xml#id(a0)"
<refElem ident="elemA1" xlink:type="locator" href="...FileA.xml#id(a1)"
<refElem ident="elemBm" xlink:type="locator" href="...FileB.xml#id(bm)"
And then I would just have to define the arcs elements.
What bothers me is the repetition for each locator of the whole URL of
FileA.xml or FileB.xml Is there a smart way to avoid it ?
I thought of defining a simple XLink to each file, but I don't know how
to perform the relative references within locators
Any hint/suggestion are welcome
