Ok, I understand your point now.

Should we open a feature request for this generic element that 
"transcludes" rather than "point to" an external resource and make 
<graphic> a specialization of it?
What about <embed>? I can imagine that <audio> and <video> could be 
further specilizations of this element that one could add later one, 
with dedicated attributes. For the purpose of <notatedMusic>, a generic 
@target or @url will be sufficient.

(hope you had a nice trip back from Stanford!)
