	Some form of XLink support seems reasonable.

	I couldn't figure out from the above links exactly what you're
suggesting.  Is it simply the specified architectural form support
described at both the above links?

	Topic Navigation Maps seems to be a meta-DTD, and RDF is a
DTD, so I'm not sure that they belong in the basic package, but
certainly they could be developed and distributed separately.  I don't
think specific DTDs or meta-DTDs are suitable for the basic package,
unless they turn out to be really, *really* common.  They're OK for
demos, of course, but I don't want to install lots of code that most
people won't use much.

	The Python code should also work fine in JPython (unless
1.5-isms have crept in), so a driver for Java SAX interfaces would
also be useful.  Before 1.0 I'll look into that.
