You've got Id, and other direct and indirect forms forms of reference;
there's no dimensional restrictions on the data XML can represent.
The only real question I can be seeing asked here is if there is some
better way to edit multiple  dimensional data sets.  Conceptually,
there are no inherent restrictions on the number of dimensions that
can be represented by any form of computer based data set (though some
implementations may have screwed up).
