At the risk of sounding totally ignorant (which is only half true), it occurred 
to me that XLinks might cause problems here.  Specifically, if I transclude part 
of one XSchema document into another, am I still guaranteed unique IDs?  This is 
such a basic thing, that I hope XLink covers it, but I haven't dug far enough 
into that spec to find out.
