I looked into this, and xml:id really doesn't help us.

In fact, section 8 Extensibility says:

 This specification is not extensible. There are no provisions for
 application designers to alter the name of the xml:id attribute,
 the set of attribute values that are considered IDs, the location(s)
 where they can occur, or make any other extensions.

So the xml:id spec is really about xml:id only.  What it says about
xml:id attributes would be nice to be able to say about attributes
named id, but as it stands, the xml:id spec doesn't give us that
