Gentlemen, start your permathreads.

The original three big projects were XML itself, XSL (before it got split
into XSLT and XSL-FO) and XML Linking, which became XLink. The issue of "Is
XLink so unsuccessful that it's worth revising/replacing" has been discussed
plenty on xml-dev, but Jonathan, if you're standing in front of a white
board when you ask this question, dry erase marker in hand, you can put down
"XML Linking."
