Perhaps an example of what I'm concerned with.
First a little document:
Lets add an element inside of <b>:
<c xml:idatt='idb idc'> <!-- look at what xml:idatt has to be -->
Now, try adding it around <b>:
<b xml:idatt='idb idc'> <!-- you have to change this too -->
Anyway, it is a simple example, but you can imagine what might happen in a
more complex or larger document. I'm afraid this might make it difficult to
edit XML in a standard text editor, or to read and understand XML text.
