*chuckle* everyone's already heard my controversial opinion on *that* :-)

Not using XLink. XLink links between XML things. Just pop a URL in there:

<image format="image/jpeg" url="sdfasdf" />

Just make sure that's either a relative URL and you keep all the fiddly
little files that now make up what should be a single block of data
together, or that it's an absolute URL and you keep the XML updated if the
image moves.
