Offering a bespoke, efficient(*) way of keyboarding IETF document references is exactly the right way to handle this, at least for people still authoring in XML.

It is not "vastly more complicated". It's a different syntax (with the
benefit of it not being PI-based which is yet another XML complication
for most authors). (*)

IFIUC, you miss the feature of not having to specify the complete URL of
the reference? (Or is there something else I'm not aware of?).

Best regards, Julian

(*) And, BTW the *other* way to include stuff as explained in
<https://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc7749.html#including.files>
continues to work, as it's just a basic XML feature.
