Re: xlink and non-addressable URIs

Title: xlink and non-addressable URIs

We are converting legacy data to XML

The converted data contains xlinks to other instances, some of which are not addressable from our system.

Is there any way of inserting a non-addressable link into an xlink:href such that a validating parser will treat it as data (and not give an error).

The parser shouldn't really care what you put into the xlink:href attribute.. it most definitely shouldn't attempt to resolve any link references, and most likely won't know what xlink:href means anyway. Or did I misunderstand the issue?
