Well, my intended purpose, the templating language which would be an XML 
document, @xml:id would identify an element that would not be present 
in the final XHTML document, so it is not an argument against this use. 
However you are right in that it may not be such a good idea, given 
that the design goal is that the graph name should be the same in the 
original RDFa document as in the template. 

So, I guess it is better indeed to look at other options.
