No-one's suggesting that!
But I don't see why the "facsimile system" should be reduced to use only
the @facs attribute and not also the other linking attributes present in
TEI. That seems to me a rather arbitrary limitation.
Why should people not be allowed to use @corresp or @ana or whatever to
link the facsimile elements?
