What *is* broken, though, is that there are two ID attributes with
the same value. That makes XLinks to them impossible.
IMHO it would have been better if the attributes "id" and "ID"
had been reserved in XML to always be of type ID, even for non-validating
parsers. I know that was considered at one time.
