RE: [xml-dev] IDs considered harmful or why keys might be better than IDs...
Amen. Let's just be sure they are equivlent for the
same requirements with some room to maneuver given
the need for a performant db. It's like normal forms
in relational dbs: a fully normalized db is an elegant
thing, but may not perform. So if someone issues a
requirement for some feature the system can already
handle, then it become the issuer's problem to justify
the utility of the new feature.

What I wish to avoid is having 5 different ways to do _everything_ because
that needlessly complicates XML.
