I think we would like this too.

It would be cool if crossReference.identifiers could link to  
crossReference.dataSource.url (appending crossReference.identifier to  
the url to make the link work) on every page they shows up on  
(reports, lists, object pages, etc...).

Also, some of our crossReferences have a url-suffix: a bit of text  
after the url+identifier that makes the link work.  I put this in my  
DataSource class.  Does anyone else have this?
