I was actually thinking of suggesting something like this in my original
message, but wanted to see what the real intention of the xlink:type
attribute was before making a suggestion.
If the intenion is that the element should be treated as an xlink when
the attribute is explictly present, and that it should not be treated as
an xlink when the attribute is absent, then I think this would help.
