Thanks for the information. I have not closely looked at music file
names. It surely sounds vastly incompatible to XML name rules.

The problem I was having is - Given a root directory, I needed to
generate a XML hierarchy depicting the file system hierarchy, starting
from the given root. I wrote a recursive Java program and converted
the information to XML, using Xerces DOM implementation.

Some of the directory/file names didn't conform to the XML name
conventions. Like, some directory names started with numeric. Some
contained characters like - (hyphen), ~ etc.

Would somebody agree with me, that XML names should allow such rules?
My problem could serve as a use case ...
