Although that doesn't necessarily help the original poster, since many generic
XML tools don't use the DOM. Given the DOM-centric view of (x)html
specification though that's probably as much as you can do in this set of
specs, then people using generic xml processing will have to do whatever it
takes to have an equivalent effect, defaulting the IDness somehow.
