I asked if you wanted that and you said no. I think Lachlan's comments are
pretty reasonable, and argue pretty convincingly against anything that would
result in making duplicate IDs allowed would be bad (certainly as an author I'd
hate it if the validator didn't tell me about duplicate IDs in the spec).

I don't understand what problem it is you want to solve. To be honest I can't
be more specific because there are hardly two sentences you've written in this
bug so far that I can understand.
