thank you elliot, for your input - i've been thinking along 
similar lines; adding a for/id association is part of my 
second proposal vis a vis the Q element, which will follow 
shortly...

we should explore all elements which can point to a local 
resource which can be reused using the for/id binding, as 
it makes it easier to implement contextual slash descriptive 
slash explanatory slash expansions, both by page authors and 
to automate, using an authoring tool.
