For general-purpose XML linking, I don't think anyone has a comfort level
for what works and what doesn't, otherwise, this discussion wouldn't be
necessary. :-)

The goal of picking only two attributes is to get the thing off the ground.
Adding all the whiz-bang features in SkunkLink 2.0 or some
application-specific language would certainly take several more attributes
(and not necessarily in the xml:namespace, as mentioned in the Q & A

Growth of standards is achieved through momentum. The situation where
everybody is sick to death of even talking about a subject is a terrible way
to make progress. SkunkLink aims to change that.
