We like to say that content and liks are the king and queen of SEO. It should not be worse for a SE Bot to follow links on an XML document than on an HTML document. The tags of an HTML document is static, while the tags on an XML document are dynamic and you can make your own.

We have a tendency to think in associations that is a much border concept than unidirectional links from one source to another. You read a story, like I did above, and suddenly you get an idea, call it an association if you prefer. You run to your computer and write the associated story.
Associations are more related to sets, the explicit or fuzzy relationships between them.
