/ Ian Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> was heard to say:
| | 4 Processing xml:id Attributes
| |
| | Each xml:id attribute is processed in the following way:
| It is unclear when this processing should occur. For example, should
| it occur after the attribute is dynamically changed via an XForms
| expression or DOM call? Should it occur when the element is added to
| the infoset, or when the document has finished loading?
| I think it should be stated that the processing in question occurs
| whenever the attribute is first created and whenever its value
| changes.

I'm inclined to say that this processing occurs whenever the xml:id
Processor is invoked and that it is up to the application to decide
when this occurs.
