I continue to believe is that using out-of-document references simply is 
a bad idea; it causes all kinds of trouble, such as failures in absence 
of a network connection, or silent changes that don't get checked properly.

What would be much more useful is to have an automated way to check 
in-lined references, such as with 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc2629xslt/rfc2629xslt.html#checking-references> 
or an xml2rfc-aware variant of id-nits.

That being said, I realize this is a minority opinion :-)

Best regards, Julian
