Maruku does (almost) [1] as a part of there attribute list syntax.
Basically, any single word (not a key=value pair or not starting with
a `#` or `.`) is treated as a reference. I have not implemented this
part in my implementation, mostly because I wasn't convinced that
Maruku's reference syntax was right.
