This section "Impacts on Other Standards" is great...
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/CR-xml-id-20050208/#impact

I see
 "Informed readers that C Impacts on Other Standards will be removed
before xml:id becomes a recommendation"

Hmm... well, it would be great to remove the "Impacts..." stuff
because it's all taken care of, but looking at a draft
implementation report...
  http://www.w3.org/XML/2005/01/xml-id-implementation.html

... I don't see, for example, a test corresponding to
this ID selectors test...
http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/CSS3/Selectors/current/xhtml/tests/css3-modsel-15.xml

Before removing the "Impacts..." section, please at least
add a link from the implementation report to something
from the CSS WG that says "yes... good question... we'll
look into that."

I can't tell if the intent is that the CSS specs get revised
to refer to xml:ID or if CSS implementations are to independently
pick up xml:ID support or what. The current spec is kinda waffly,
as far as I can tell...

"Document languages may contain attributes that are declared to be of
type ID." is pretty waffly
http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-CSS2-19980512/selector.html#id-selectors

I haven't looked into DOM, XPath, etc. as closely, but the concern
applies.
