Having seen what docbook stuff uses, I steal those ideas.
E.g. a chapter on subject pages,
<chapter id='pgs'>

  <example id='pgs.ex.1'>


so the names relate to the subject?

I will wait for someone else to answer that one!
I have tried olink, but not include.

>In DocBook DTD "idref" attributes point to "id" which must exist, right?

Yes, at parse time.

> It's possible to add element, which will control situation when "id" not exist in current edition ? "id" may be visible after join of documents.

No. Its an error if the id does not exist at parse time.

Perhaps olink would help.
may give you some help.
