Section 4.1 number 6 (second list):

"Strings and byte arrays are represented as multi-reference simple types, but special rules allow them to be represented efficiently for common cases (see also 4.2.1 Strings and 4.2.3 Array of Bytes ). An accessor to a string or byte-array value MAY have an attribute named id and of type "ID" per the XML Specification[8]. If so, all other accessors to the same value are encoded as empty elements having a local, unqualified attribute named href and of type "uri-reference" per the XML Schema Specification[5], with a href attribute value of a URI fragment identifier referencing the single element containing the value."

What is the point of this?  I though that given number 10 from the previous list any element could be multi reference but this appears to limit is to the two specified types.  If not then what what benefit is the statement?
