Re: [xml-dev] XPointer is dead. What about XLink?

Nothing to contribute to this discussion other than note of another example of XLink playing a seemingly significant role:

XLink is important to the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard Standard (METS) utilized by libraries and museums and other institutions maintaining digital repositories.  Given the variety of descriptive metadata encoding standards (to facilitate discovery) for digital objects, METS provides encoding to handle this and the variety of other purposes of metadata (e.g. preservation).  XLink seems to play an important role in its schema for links to descriptive metadata schema and file locations of digital object components.

Not a user, have just read the literature.  http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/mets-schemadocs.html

What about XLink, is it being pursued by either standards groups or by implementors?
