I'm not sure that I'd put it in xmlproperty. Its more a general purpose 
XML to XML transform; something you'd use to manipulate graphs before 
something like xmlproperty or XSL handles it; something that would have 
a life outside ant.

For example the CDL langauge I discussed is for configuring big systems, 
and if you look at that microsoft proposed System Modeling langauge, 
they have some (limited) xref stuff.
