Hi Yves,
Yes, you are right, the xml:id solution in option (b) would only be 
understood by its processors and would mean the script id would change 
is toolInfo elements were added/removed form a script - possibly 
confusing other mechanisms.

Option (a) would be a bit more verbose, but cleaner to manage as tool 
info is added/removed. Though it would be a bit more verbose, this is 
only for times when the toolinfo need to be embedded in HTML, which I 
guess may be less preferred to external files or other web resources 
long term anyway.

So lets agree on option a.

I'll update the its:tool text and send that out shortly.
