In coins v2, I've added both generic support for IDREF and a 
specialized IDREF for registering an EventListener.

I also found it vital, when going to wrapper elements, that
the Bindings document specify the class of the application
object as well as the class of the wrapper element. --This 
allows a wrapper element to handle any application object
that implements a particular interface.

Michael, I love the idea of specifying a pattern rather than
just an element name. We should definately borrow from
XSL here. 

I also think IDREF should be in scope, and there again,
I like the idea of XPointer.
