--- Comment #1 from Henri Sivonen <hsivonen@hsivonen.fi> ---
I'm strongly opposed to this. xml:id has a high implementation cost--both in
browsers and in other apps. I think the HTML spec should avoid any appearance
of suggesting that using xml:id  or implementing xml:id  might be a good idea.
(I have actually implemented xml:id in a non-browser app, so I have some
implementation experience.)

Also, use case starts with "An author with a Web site which follows polyglot
markup"... Sigh.

Please WONTFIX.
