I understand. The popup example is given because
it is clearly a semantic for a control, and in the grand
tradition of genCoding, when GUIing, GUI. I too
think hyperlinking is a control type (how many
times have we had this discussion now??) whereas,
a relationship is just pointing by some reference
type (and that is where the trouble starts, nameloc,
relloc, treeloc anyone?).
Otherwise, this thread comes close to resurrecting
archForms in RDF syntax.
As I said earlier to Liam, I don't think we take the
leap because the benefits (among, device independence
of content) are hard to sell without veryProminentRunningCode.

I wouldn't even want to store it as a "popup" element. Pop-ups are device
specific; many devices can't do it. Here's a more semantic example inspired
by RFCs. Imagine that internally the IETF stores this:
<rfc num="1111"/> <!-- or however they choose to reference another RFC
Then, they convert it to something like what you showed originally with one
stylesheet for web delivery, a sidebar with background shading for print
delivery with another stylesheet, etc.
