For the record, it was a deliberate decision to make the usemap
attribute to IDREF and XHTML-aware browsers like Mozilla and Netscape 6
does (happen to) work with such image map used in XHTML documents
served as 'application/xhtml+xml', but nevertheless, an erratum
is planned for "5.8. Client-side Image Map Module" of Modularization
of XHTML to make it a URI reference.
