I use XInclude *heavily* as a means to write articles about XML. I
usually write listings as external files, for easy testing, and then I
use <xi:include parse="text"... to bring it seamlessy into the article
for sending to the editor. All escaping and encoding issues are pretty
much taken care of. Very handy.
I use the XInclude implementation in 4Suite, part of which I wrote.

We sure the heck haven't. Madness...

points and ranges are really for use in Web browsers and other such
interactive UIs. They are useless for offline-type use. I and others
complained early on that they should be removed from the XPointer core
and moved to a user agent module of some sort. Oh well.
