How about when you want to reference more than one ID from the one element?
I came close to using IDREFS for xmlsoftware.com and the only reason I
didn't was the lack of support in XSL.
xmlsoftware.com is a single XML document with two main sections, a list of
categories with descriptions and a list of software. Each category has an
ID. IDREFS could be used for associating products with one *or more*
<Product Categories="editor browser">...</Product>
(not an SGML tribal elder)
