This is sly, but not sly enough  :-)

The entire subtext of HLink is as a replacement for XLink.  That is how it has 
been pushed by the HTML WG.  It has to have been so, because if not, there 
would have been a flood of complaints that the WG was balkanizing the linking 

The WG could easily have developed a better solution, and still couched it in 
terms of XHTML.  This would satisfy the letter of the charter, and at the same 
time help justify the abandonment of XLink.
