<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-iab-html-rfc-02.html#element.references>:

> If there is at least one <references> element, a "References" section is added to the document, continuing with the next major section number after the last <section>.
>
> Each references element will be added to that "References" section as if it were a section itself.

That doesn't work. For a document that has only one <references> element 
(for instance, just normative references), it will lead to unnecessary 
(and uncommon) nesting.

> <section id="n-references">
>   <h2 id="s-3">
>     <a href="#s-3" class="selfRef">3.</a>
>     <a href="#n-references" class="selfRef">References</a>
>   </h2>
>   <section id="n-informative-references">
>     <h3 id="s-3.1">
>       <a href="#s-3.1" class="selfRef">3.1.</a>
>       <a href="#n-informative-references" class="selfRef">
>         Informative References</a></h3>
>     <dl class="reference">...
>     </dl>
>   </section>
> </section>

This doesn't explain where the ID for the enclosing section comes from.

Best regards, Julian
