Just to comment on this. CDR is basically about one document referencing  
another. As in:

  <object data="foo">fallback...</object>

... such situations are not specific to XML-based languages. For example,  
the situation above can also arise in HTML. We did not see any strong  
reasons to make such restrictions at the framework level. In fact, a lot  
of the CDR documents that are out there are written in HTML. Think of  
framesets, iframes et cetera.
