http://www.docbook.org/tdg/en/html/ulink.html says:

"When rendered online, it is natural to make the content of the ULink 
element an active link. When rendered in print media, the URL might be 
ignored, printed after the text of the link, or printed as a footnote."

I guess the question is how <ulink/> is actually handled by the SGML 
tools we care about. Can we assume that _none_ of those tools will 
ignore the "url" attribute in print media?
