none yet. 8o) I would need to have one available for each "concept" (page, partial page, directory)
that I want the content managers to be able to link to.

It's mainly because of navigation. I'm still toying with the ideas behind the semantic linking.
I don't know that I would use it for the site in general, but I probably will for specific
concept areas like people, dicitonary entries, and scripture references. The schema linking
seems like it would be perfect for creating links that contain more information that just
the actual page.

I love this crazy world of information management. 8o) It's tiring at times, but I love it
all the same. 8o)

Good idea. Back to book.xml? ;-)

Ok, I'm just joking. I want to use xinclude in it too, but for another 
reason: download part of the site structure from a common place, for 
multiple site consistency. This would help in the above task, and as 
Jeff says could (and probably should), be automated.

The question is: how many entries does site.xml have? One for each page?
