One doesn't, I don't think. Because /common/en.xml has the string "the
section called" but not an alternative "The section called".
Maybe you could file a feature request that the initial-cap version
should be added to the gentext and the stylesheets modified to support
it through <xref linkend="foo" role="sentenceBegin"> or something.

No logic in the stylesheets to figure out whether the xref occurs at
the beginning or middle of a sentence. A workaround maybe is just do:
<para>A good place to start is <xref
