Those who aren't regular XML.COM skimmers note that
Eric van der List has published another one of his
thorough and clearly written articles. This one

The second one is ok. The first, in my experience,
makes the instance a little harder to read because
I see id="somevalue" and immediately think this
is the id of the of element and not a reference. I note

isn't too hard to make the discrimination. Still I wonder
is a good practice.

save us a lot of time and effort in analysis.
