Michael answers the real matter better than me; but just to comment
on P5: the use of ID/IDREF has been removed from P5, but it
has been replaced by something which in simple cases is identical.
so really it makes no practical dfference to your design.
Apropos of P5 and linking, I intend to move heaven and earth next
week (for which read "persuade the editors") to get a TEI CD
out before Christmas containing the new style TEI P5 with changed linking,
so that interested parties can start to experiment.
