	Yes, in order to become a generalized graph-to-graph transformation
language, as opposed to a tree-to-tree transformation language, XLink issues
need to be dealt with. For example, currently the ability to transform
graphs which are constructed via links between disparate source documents is
lacking (or severely limited).
