I shouldn't think that the file name should be part of the XML format. The
purpose of XML is to store the data in a conceptual format, and allow the
viewer to decide how the data should be represented. The above format is
obviously geared for outputing to an HTML file which may or may not always be
the desired effect. The id also seems somewhat superflous in that we can
specify that this section belongs to chapter 1 with <chapter>1</chapter> or
some such.
