Validating IDREFS...

Recently I wanted to make more checkable my SGML/XML source,
and I have similar troubles mentioned on this thread.
What should I do if my IDs and IDREFs contain non-name characters? Why is it so?!
(My pages should be reachable for external databases, which use identifiers with the same syntax, so I can not just convert the values to something else.)
