"SHOULD" doesn't mean "MAY".

It's a must in the Atom WG because (I presume) they assumed that it wouldn't be
difficult to come up with unique IDs, and thus all software could do it. I do
not share that assumption. Not following the SHOULD in the HTML5 spec means you
are violating Atom, which isn't ok, but that's a problem for the Atom spec. I
do not think that being unable to generate a stable ID should be grounds for
saying you aren't conforming to HTML, even if you aren't conforming to Atom.
