   Another comment, I think it would be better if you could do without
   the ixin new element.  Instead, I think that a map that translate
   labels to node number could be used, and then the labels that are
   already in the tree could be used, avoiding the need to add a new

   Something like that would in any case be needed for cross references,
   so it wouldn't hurt much to use it for internal references too.

I'm sorry i don't follow.  Are you referring to ‘ixcc’, which is not an
element but an attribute?  For example:

  (image (@ (where "inline") (ixcc "(blob 0)"))
         (imagefile (@) "logo"))

which corresponds to the XML:

  <image where="inline" ixcc="(blob 0)">

The ixcc "targets" include not just nodes (family ‘node’) but also DTS
(family ‘(dts NAME)’), flosets (family ‘(floset TYPE)’) and blobs-index
entries (family ‘blob’, as in the example).  If you play around w/ the
.ixin files using spit.el, you can see these various families (mostly
nodes and DTS) highlighted.  I think spec/{ixin,z4}.ixin are the only
ones that have blob and floset families:

$ find . -name '*.ixin' | xargs grep -nHE -e 'ixcc.+(blob|floset)'
./spec/ixin.ixin:460:     (image (@ (where "inline") (ixcc "(blob 0)"))
./spec/ixin.ixin:620:              (float (@ (type "Figure") (ixcc "((floset 
Figure) 0)"))
./spec/ixin.ixin:639:              (float (@ (type "Figure") (ixcc "((floset 
Figure) 1)"))
./spec/z4.ixin:407:               (ixcc "(blob 0)"))
./spec/z4.ixin:529:                  (float (@ (ixcc "((floset Figure) 0)"))
./spec/z4.ixin:547:                  (float (@ (ixcc "((floset Figure) 1)"))
