Thanks John,

  Not sure if I understand the difference - surely an id is like an 
"address" to a piece of data (albeit in this case, wrapped up in the 
tags). If it is just to mark the structure, what possible purpose 
could it serve.

I'm happy to use it only in attribute fields, but it seems such a 
kludge (as one can't specifiy the TYPE of the attribute), and worse 
doesn't seem to follow the nexted model.
