1) "alias" to me implies a relationship between the
_names_; which is what we have today with <foo id="x"
refid="y" />.  But if we decide to go this route, I'm
sure we can compromise semantically.

Do you (or anyone else) have an opinion on DD's
assertion that the concrete use-case (modifying
imported references) could be better solved by scoping
imported references as targets? [1]
