           Summary: [F&O] fn:id is broken -- gives wrong answers for
                    elements of type ID
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT

fn:id is broken -- it gives wrong answers for elements of type ID:  XML Schema
and XPointer both make clear that an element of type ID identifies its
_parent_, not the element itself.

This is a serious bug because it means XPointer cannot be simply implemented
using an XPath2 implementation out of the box.

I am submitting this personally, but I expect the XML Core WG (the keeper of
the XPointer specs) will endorse this comment at their next meeting
(2008-09-10).
