I would like to get the symbol that gets resolved from XML documentation attribute name for the purposes of verifying whether the documentation compiler will be able to resolve the identifier I have.

So I guess something in terms of DocumentationCommentCompiler.GetDocumentationCommentId would work, or DocumentationCommentWalker visit's diagnostics result even better. Unfortunately the documentation compiler is not public, so does any alternative exist?

I am peeking at SymbolFinder.FindDeclarations but not sure what the differences might be.
