You need the optional but specified functionality in appendix E of the xml
catalog spec (or use an sgml-open catalog:


But I guess you knew that and discounted this in advance with the "normative"

But I think that you were requesting that a valid HTML5 DOM that is serialised
as xhtml should use xml:id rather than id for attributes of type ID (that is,
that the name of the attribute be changed on serialisation)?

xml:id is usable with any XML document type and infers IDness if used with an
xml:id processor, but usually (as here) it makes the document invalid, whether
that matters or not depends on what you are doing.
