In parsers that support xml:base they use it to resolve any relative URI 
specified in SYSTEM entity references. If they also support xinclude 
they presumably use it to resolve references in that case.

Given that a large part of xml _on the web_ is xhtml and that uses href 
rather than xml:href, I still don't think you've provided any use case 
where an application that understood this new xml:href proposal couldn't 
just as simply understand an href attribute.
