ODF isn't a math specification, the spec doesn't have to be 100% 
ODF should be driven by need of users, not need of the programmer to express 
any and all structure in it.

Ehm, now you are confusing me; you are the one that wants to introduce 
something special for a certain attribute. Based on the logic that a numeric 
item is the same thing as a reference to another item in the file.
I'm confused how you can say that these two things are so similar that they 
need the same behavior.
