Yeah. I don't know if that was a good decision or not, but we decided
to make the links in EBNF be URIs not IDs. That allows links to cross
document boundaries, but it also means that links inside the same
document have to be authored differently.

I wonder if the NG version of DocBook should allow either IDREF or HREF?
