When dealing with URI's please use existing standards, in particular,
XLink/XPointer. XLink/XPointer will allow you to both link to other
resources as well as describe the relationships between those
resources. Those resources could be documents, or individual elements
or attributes within disparate documents or the same document.
Please seriously consider using XLink/XPointer for any URI's.
