Sanjay, I also cannot understand it fully. What is �across XSL transformations� thing? Besides other reasons, this exam is going to be tough because termonology in this field is not fixed yet.
All I can figure out is: XLink looks less silly than other options...

Aha! Here is an example how XLink can be used with XSLT technology: http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2001/05/02/trxml.html

Currently there is no support for XLink technology in XSL(T).
However, �XML Linking and Style�, W3C NOTE 5 June 2001 proposes additions to XSLT and/or XSL.
�In order to address the problems associated with placing all of the burden of link maintenance on the stylesheet author, we need to add XLink support into XSLT in a much more significant manner.
