1) Isn't the syntax 'verse/id()' more consistent with the rest of the

'chapter/id(verse)' would match all verses pointed to by chapters. If
I understand correctly, in the current spec, the following are

2) When 'id(@idref)' is used as a match pattern, e.g. in xsl:template,
the XSL processor must scan the entire source tree to find any attribute
'@idref' with value containing the id of the current node.  True?  Or am
I missing something?
