Hi Michael,

  thanks for the help.

Actually I did not think much about how the reference property fixup could be 
done by the parser. Though I did not expect it to be a trivial task  
implementing such a "higher order" feature, as it requires access to the 
schema and manipulation of the whole document tree. I was quite blinded by my 
hopes: Reference fixup would be a *great* help for unitizing large documents, 
especially those produced in a collaborative but loosly coupled manner.

From your statement I conclude that reference property fixup is a inherently 
hard to implement feature for any current XML-parser? Is there actually a 
parser that  has the capability to do it?
