added that to the description, the docs still need tweaking. 
German cave_entrance description lacks any mention of "cave:ref". 
The english says "number in a cave cadastre" which is perhaps 
a remnant of French translation and not terribly useful as it 
would imply an official registry which may exist only in few

So what does cave:ref really mean? Should that say something like 
"unique cave identifier"?
Shouldn't cave:ref be subtyped for example as "cave:ref:at" or
"cave:ref:fr" for austrian resp french ids to prevent id clashes?
