Yes.  But stuff like location="@href" - shades of XPath/Xpointer - is
going to run into the name clash problem again, for which the answer
predictably trotted out wil be that it's gotta be hlink:location or
someuch.  (I predict a comment to this effect - reiterating the primacy of
dogma - from W3C Liaisons or Other Leading Lights)

| Host language == Markup application language 
| Integration language == Architectural forms

I'm not sure about this.  AFs would seem to apply to both.
