>Can you explain why linking and styling are "in" this narrower view
>and other things not?
Just the original terms of the project. Syntax (SGML-lite), Style
(DSSSL-lite), and Linking (HyTime-lite).
>Might this not be a fairly arbitrary definition of where the
>boundaries of XML should be drawn?
Of course. Personally, I'd draw the line at syntax and leave the rest
well enough alone as their own separate projects.

It's an important issue, but I don't think it's anything to do with XML.
I don't view the original and reasonably modest XML Infoset as
particularly central to XML either, though it's certainly based on XML.
I prefer to leave transmogrification to Calvin and Hobbes.
