Changing the names, yes; less powerful, perhaps;
but more complicated? Definitely not.
The 'hlink:hlink' element does all that's required to
endow arbitrary host vocabulary elements with
XLink semantics, and it does so without using
all the PIs, NOTATION declarations, and levels of
indirection required by the HyTime 2 AFDR. This
looks a lot simpler.
(OK, so it relies on XML Namespaces. This is not,
in my eyes, a big deal; it's one of the few things
that XML namespaces are actually good for.)
