Hello Andrzej,

Thank you for the pointer to xml:tm. I think, however, that the Best 
Practice 18 (topic of this thread), is only about the need of unique 
identifiers and not specific applications of identifiers, like in 
xml:tm. In addition, we are describing only a best practice and do not 
try to standardize anything.
