I've always assumed that you could model XLink in XML Schema.  Given 
the massive scope of XLink, if it can't model a little language with a 
total of less than a dozen elements and attributes all told, 
something's really wrong.

Doesn't mean that I think it should be compulsory.

Anyhow, if you did this, you could default away almost all the XLink 
machinery but you'd still have xlink:href= on your linking elements, 
which I gather the HTML WG finds unacceptable. -Tim
