The semantics of XLink is screwed anyway and nobody uses it as they should.

BTW, Jeff, don't want to be a pain in the ass, but I would suggest that 
we move from a URI-based link estimation to an attribute based one. I 
don't care what attribute and what namespace, but I'm concerned about 
the fact that this solution is not future-compatible, say, for example, 
if I have URIs that already contain a protocol, what do I do?
