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
