/ Trevor Jenkins <trevor.jenkins@suneidesis.com> was heard to say:
| Your question begs further questions such as support for legacy (SGML)
| documents, can a XML compliant DTD be used with SGML instances, and

The really thorny question here is, how long can DocBook resist
features that are XML-specific in practice (mixed namespaces,
constraints expressed in a schema language other than DTDs), etc.

The proposed linking extensions will add XLink-namespaced attributes
more-or-less throughout. That works fine in SGML, until someone uses a
different xmlns declaration for the XLink namespace in different parts
of the same document.

                                        Be seeing you,
