Ok. How about something like:

   <tss-link ejb-name="" poa-name=""/>

Not sure if poa-name is really the right name (not my area of  
expertise).  And of course we can go with elements instead of  
attributes, your choice.  Let me know what you want for elements/ 
attributes and I'll throw it in today and get the data converted over  
into it.
