I'm unsure whether two attributes that are an id could be allowed by
XML/xml:id. If this is allowed both should be allowed on an element if they
have the same value.

Other XML infrastructure attributes (xml:space, xml:base) are also mentioned.
In my opinion it is better to mention the possible use cases. Also it may be a
good idea to have a warning that xml:id is allowed but discouraged because of
the incompatibility with the HTML serialization.

Also please note there is no gain in using xml:id instead of id except when
processing a document with an XML parser that knows xml:id but not HTML5.
