Dumb questions about PUBLIC IDs

I'm curious. I don't see it in the XML spec, but are PUBLIC IDs really supposed to be in the form "-//Foo//Bar//Baz". Is this an ISO format? If so, where is it defined?
The grammatical production "PubidLiteral" and its rules for space compression seem to encompass either a URI, the format above, and just about anything else you'd like to put in there.
Tool survey: IE5.5 won't display a file unless the PUBLIC ID is in the format above. XML Spy doesn't care. Expat doesn't care. Xerces doesn't care.
take it easy,
