To add extra information to be ignored by browsers, I'd be tempted to use
a processing instruction somewhere in the document (perhaps even better
if it is somewhere else entirely).  If you need to refer
to a specific element of the document, I'd fill in the element's ID
attribute, and refer to that ID in the processing instruction.

If you chose to put your extra information in another element, then you
could do cool things like use HyTime linking and other fun stuff. :-)
