In a way, then, name restrictions might be part of validation instead?
Just as an attribute value is checked to see if it matches the name
restrictions only if a DTD (or schema, now) declares it to be an ID/IDREF
type, but this is separate from well-formed-ness. Sure, why not treat all
name restrictions as part of validation?
