sed being your friend, I can tell you it gets harder when you have a
really big doc that has lots of <xref> tags throughout with hard-coded
LINKEND to IDs full of s1-, s2-, s3- and so forth.
XSLT will resolve all of them, forward and reverse if needed.
The source of the problem as I see it is the dual use of id attributes.
Just because the stylesheets have an option of using sect1 id values
as file names, it doesn't mean we have to.
If the problems are separated, variant solutions will meet the different
id values should simply be document unique points used for cross
reference. No more. As the schema says, they are optional.
