Hmm, I hadn't heard of that before. But: I think it's really out of  
scope (or, rather, addresses a different problem). CGM is a structured  
format, IIRC, so this would more more like addressing an SVG file by  
ID, or the complex scheme for addressing subparts of MPEG.

On second thoughts, if we have a "related work" section, it would be  
good to put a paragraph on this in there.
