My understanding is that the use cases of the xlink:href attribute for 
KOffice would be ".", ".." and other relative IRIs that reference an 
(embedded) document within the same package. Is that assumption correct?

If yes, then I would suggest that we state in the specification that 
only these IRIs are permitted for an ODF 1.2 document. Otherwise we may 
raise the expectation that even http IRIs do work, that maybe is not the 
case for any implementation.

What is your thought on this?
