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.
