Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

may I suggest the introduction of an attribute called (for example) "subid"
whereof the id of en element can get automatically derrived by a predifined
mechanism (e.g. extensioning with a dot)? 

Example: 

<rootElement>
 <anElement id="1">
  <anotherElement subid="1">
  </anotherElement>
 </anElement>
</rootElement>

being equal to 

<rootElement>
 <anElement id="1">
  <anotherElement id="1.1">
  </anotherElement>
 </anElement>
</rootElement>

I am not aware that such a mechanism as fundamental XML issue is in place
already. Or am I wrong?

Thanks in advance for your answer!

Yours sincerely,
Benjamin Hartung, 
Dresden, Germany
