The parser doesn't. Cocoon does. Have a look at the source, Cocoon 
actually knows about xlink, both as "proper" xlinks (in the xlink: 
namespace) and as "semi" xlinks (the "href" and "src" attributes). The 
problem is that it does it in such a way that makes the app go nuts, 
with a StackOverflow exception and (from a quick and dirty debugging 
session) a set of recursive calls between XLinkPipe(s).

So did I, and I double checked, with Mozilla, IE, command line Xerces & 
Xalan... all behaved well, Cocoon being the exception. Try for yourself.
