Well, the whole point of XML is that you can define your own element
types. So how about <link window="new" target="http://www.example.com/"/>?
Now the next question is, what are you going to do with it?
Remember, XML doesn't *do* anything. It just is. Software - such as a
browser - may do something *with* it, but since you're (potentially) making
up your own element types, you have to tell it what you want done.
