I'm not sure either, but I can imagine this to be for situations
where in fact it does matter (because the generated html is chunked, say).

Yes, and yes. (Read: that's not an exclusive OR.)

The docbook XSL is meant to be customized, so as soon as you know
the template that generates the link you can tune it in a custom
(wrapper) stylesheet.
