Couple of points:
1) werken.xpath is basically deprecated at this point, in favor
of Jaxen (http://jaxen.org/). Much better XPath compliance.
2) xlink, as I understand it, is pretty much just a syntax for
identifying links between resources. Dunno how an xpath
engine would assist you there.
I have been toying with the idea of building an XInclude engine
on top of Jaxen, but we don't have XPointer support built in
yet, so it'll be a while. Plus, XInclude has different semantics
Though, as in all cases, instead of just asking about a particular
technology, if you instead give us an example of what it is you're
trying to accomplish (the goal you're trying to reach), we may be
able to help you out a tad more. Goal-directed design tends to
work better than task-directed methods.
