I completely agree. That's why I said "XML Linking" and not "XML
Hyperlinking."  I think that modeling relationships is a bit ambitious,
though; a "model" makes me think of an ordered structure of components.
Perhaps "representing relationships" would be the lower-hanging fruit, but
we don't need a new standard to say that resource X has relationship Y to
resource Z; we've got RDF for that.
