Let's not get into a process rat hole over a misunderstanding 
of my intentions.

I didn't mean to imply literally that the xml:id PR might
get held up due to this issue.

I'm just using examples from our current set of specs as a

If we can't figure out how to comply with this QA requirement,
then someday down the road, it could hold up one of our specs.
