At the moment there is no mechanism to tell the browser to interpret
elements as references. You will be able to express the required
relationship with XLink but XLink is still cooking...

Right now, I do it with "home grown" code. Instead of invoking
an XML parser directly I use two Python utilities with micro-documents:- -- parse document and any file's referenced from this file -- parse document ignoring files referenced from this file
(same as a normal parse but can produce useful debugging output that
is specific to micro-document architecture approach).
