           Summary: Relationship to xml:id

Currently the relationship to xml:id is not explicitly defined in the spec.
Only implicitly it can be said that in the XHTML serialization it may be used
because XHTML is an application of XML.

Since being explicit is better then being implicit I suggest adding a reference
to xml:id 1.0 to the spec. More precisely xml:id should be listed in section
3.2.3 and either gets its own subsection or one shared with the id

It should be made clear that only id or xml:id may be used on an element and
not both. (I may be mistaken and it is allowed to specify both with the same
content, if that's the case then this should be specified) Also a warning that
xml:id is XML only.
