           Summary: [XQuery+XSLT] xml:id
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Last Call drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XPath

There's an unnecessary inconsistency between the XSLT and XQuery specifications
over xml:id. XQuery makes it an error if the value of the attribute isn't a
valid NCName (a static error in the case of a fixed constructor, a dynamic error
otherwise), XSLT doesn't make it an error unless you validate.

I don't care which solution we adopt but let's get them into line.

Note that XSLT permits

<element xml:id="{expr}"/>

while XQuery doesn't.
