I think yours is already very weak and ad-hoc.  Rather than pretending 
to have a generalized solution, I think that we should honestly admit 
that our mechanism in RELAX NG is very weak and ad-hoc and is only 
slightly better than ID/IDREF.

I will extend my rewrite, but I don't think inference rules are absolutely 
required.  7.2 does not have any inference rules and this is just fine.
