Whatever else you do don't abuse semantics....
The "mark it simply and canonicalize it later" is OK, but
you'd still want to use a new namespaced attribute,
I reckon, for sanity.
What about two other cases:
where we are not sure _which_ John it is (we
know of three). In this case <persName ref="#smith1 #smith2">
would have a different meaning (ie alternation rather than
<persName ref="wikipedia.org#smith www.bbc.co.uk/people/smith">
where there are two useful and distinct pointers to the same person.
So does a multiple @ref mean
#1 | #2
#1 & #2
how would we distinguish?
You _could_ organize your family into
what would be the problem with that?
the fact that Marge would also occur
in the Bouvier family?
