Why use conref instead of conkeyref? #conref

Jonathan Hanna

Being new to DITA, I am trying to understand cases where conref should be used instead of conkeyref. As far as I can tell, conkeyref can do anything conref can do with the added benefit of indirect addressing. The only advantage I can see to conref is that it is more straightforward to use since it does not require a keydef in a map.

Is there anything I am missing? Other than ease of use, is there any reason to use conref instead of conkeyref?
