I think keeping the method with Public ID is fine, but if in
many cases we're just passing NULL as the first arg, why don't
we have a method which just accepts the system ID/URI?  I
myself have no use for Public ID, so I essentially always
just pass in NULL, which to me makes the code look confusing...

(I hate NULL/ignored parameters, especially as the first arg, I
usually rank args in order of "importance" to the method/procedure).
