Wow, this one's been a long time coming.  The original 
XML WG spent most of the summer of *1997* on this one;
I suspect a record for the longest-gestating W3C spec.

I look at the eventual result and I don't see anything
nasty that's crept in.  Major congrats to the people
who finally got the job done.

I think the potential application space for XLink is
nearly unbounded, and think it ought to be become a 
central technology.  That won't happen unless somebody
buckles down and writes some code to show what it can
do.  -Tim
