Let me just point out that

1) The use case si implementations/apps that (already) support XInclude.
2) Browsers do not support XInclude and are as such not the target.
3) Per what the W3C’ NU validator accepts, the W3C community already accepts
many things in HTML5 that browsers do not support, for instance RDFa.

I agree that, given for instance the precedence of RDFa, xml:id should perhaps
rather be specced in a separate spec. However, I thought it good to start here.

I “can live with” speccing it in a separate spec. That should be clear from the
initial comment.

And the trouble is?

Is WONTFIX the right resolution if it is going into a separate spec? Just
