After looking into it some more and thinking about it, here's what I'm 

External links = olink
internal links = xref

xrefs and olinks,  there's a docbook 5 path. It requires some sed-lovin' 
no matter what we do.

I like that we can style xrefs. Should we, at some point in the future, 
decide xref is a pain and we'd prefer link,  it's sed-able. No great pain.

If no objections, this is the path I'm going,
