  '''[[FS-''' Maybe I misunderstood. I had no problem with the construction of the ID value, e.g. as a combination of a string to identify the document plus a string to identify the element. I only worried about the validation mechanisms for cross-document IDs, which do not exist (see the statement below on xml:id). But if validation across documents is not necessary, but only retrieval, then we can state s.t. like "The IDs across documents are not used for schema based validation of uniqueness. Hence, cross-document validation of ID values is not an issue."''']]'''
  
+ '''[[CL-''' How about [http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/java/util/UUID.html] as a quick guideline thought related to the generation IDs (actually GUIDs)?''']]'''.

  === Challenge/Issue ===
  
  In order to most effectively re-use translated text where content is re-used (either across update versions or across deliverables) it is necessary to have a unique and persistent id associated with the element.
