Section 3.2.10 of [1] states:

  "[Definition:]  uri represents a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) Reference as
                  defined in [RFC 2396]."

Furthermore section 4 of [2] states:

  "The term "URI-reference" is used here to denote the common usage of a
   resource identifier.  A URI reference may be absolute or relative,
   and may have additional information attached in the form of a
   fragment identifier."
  "URI-reference = [ absoluteURI | relativeURI ] [ "#" fragment ]"

I think these two statements answer the question if "#ref" is a valid
instance of the uri schema type with yes, since the part
"absoluteURI | relativeURI" is optional in the definition of

I conclude that therefore we should remove the IDREF attribute from the
Reference element.
