The request was to improve the ability to link into web documents -
that's the use case.

The proposal to achieve this was by requiring XPointer.  Please
actually respond to proposals made, and issues raised with sensible
responses, and do not just dismiss them with inaccurate comments
saying it is not appropriate for the specificaion.  Improving linking
into a web documents is a perfectly reasonable use case to be
addressed here, if it's not, why is it inappropriate, how do we know
what use cases are appropriate and what aren't?
