The point here is that standards define minimal interoperabilityt.
The more standards you have to implement for interoperability, the
bigger the problem (i.e. you would be creating an XML that was really
an aggregate of XML+XLink+Xpointer+<whatever>), and that would be
bigger and harder than XML 1.0.
