This buys the possiblity to use spaces and other Unicode
characters in logical target names which are invalid for
QNames. It also buys using character references for writing
down the link target name. Both may be important features
for non-technicans, in particular for non-english

It also avoids problems in case someone has the great
idea to define a link target name containing a colon.
