Well, they're ID's for the purposes of XPath id(), DOM getElementById(),
Xpointer, etc. implementations that follow the proposed convention, but
they're just labels as far as SGML/XSDL are concerned.   Those that need the
reliability will choose the industrial strength solution; those that just
need something to link to can use the RDDL-ish convention.
