Note this would presumably also affect mathml in xhtml.

MathML2 specifies id as does MathMl3. (Some drafts of MathML3 switched to using
xml:id in preference but in the end, backwards compatibility and feedback from
implementers in browsers and elsewhere caused us to stick with id.

Not insisting on <!DOCTYPE syntax in the serialization is a good thing, but
can't you assume in the spec (and implement in your atom pipeline) a catalog
that defaults a dtd or schema that implies the IDness of the id attribute?
