The fact is that I have no clue how this attribute has found it's way
into the sitemap (and I and Berin as well have simply copied it from an
already existing entry :( ). The CVS history tells my ... (oh shit locus
is down again). It could be that it was to prevent the commandline
environment to crawl these links but it doesn't do so yet. There has
been a discussion about that several week ago if and how we should make
it possible to tell the commanline environment not to crawl into some
URI (but it was at the sitemap level to prevent it).

This could be a problem, sure (I'm not that deep into XLink to tell you
for sure)

Can you tell me what the general benefit of using it at all is?

	This is what I like about the Cocoon-dev mailing lists. You often
