I really like XLink and XPointer and want everyone in the XML community to
know about and use them. On the other hand, I think it's quite reasonable
to suggest that XLink and XPointer details, especially before the specs
harden, deserve their own space.  I'd like to see some members of the
HyTime community who haven't been working full tilt with XML join the
discussion, and I'd like to be able to ask fairly pointed questions about
XLink/XPointer without boring the hell out of people who want to use XML as
an interchange format.

While I'll continue to make some postings to XML-Dev regarding
XLink/XPointer, mostly regarding the status of my XLinkFilter project, I've
definitely subscribed to the new list as well.  If XSL and RDF rate their
own spaces, XLink/XPointer does as well.  My filters are all set up and
ready to go.
