hmmm?   not in the W3C specs I see, like

The problem is that there might be multiple {{ref}}s for a single
{{refdef}}, so which one gets linked to?  We could have two kinds of
{{ref}}, one of which must be used exactly once, and the other of which
is used when you want additional uses.  {{ref2}} for secondary
references?  These usage constraints should be checked by any decent
HTML checker...
