If I was convinced the maintenance had any practical impact, I might 
talk less about zombies and necromancers.  I'm sure there are a couple 
of specs that will upgrade to note XLink 1.1, but I expect the actual 
impact on the software world will be unnoticeable, even in the few 
places that use it.

But hey, sure, it's the kind of exciting project that standards 
organizations are good at.
