This sounds me reasonable. Alternatively we could have RefContext (ex. 
Techniques for WCAG 2.0 - http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/) and 
RefResource (ex. Combining adjacent image and text links for the same 
resource - http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/#H2) elements instead of 
TestSuite and sourceFile respectively.

I had in mind something like:
<UserProfile>
	<attribute>
		<name>disability</name>
		<value>deafness</value>
	</attribute>
	...
</UserProfile>

But, sure I agree, time is a big issue here.

Best regards,
Vangelis
