I've now done a bit of a tidy up on the values used for the @type
attribute on <ident>.
The following usages seem worth distinguishing; their frequencies in the
current Guidelines are as follows:
2 ge [general entity name]
2 rng [rng identifier]
4 frag [dtd fragment identifier]
5 ns [namespace]
11 pe [parameter entity name]
