I used to think that too (although it was about a different ID 
attribute)[1]. Now I think of it again, it probably has to do with the 
fact that XHTML 1.1 only marks the changes between XHTML 1.0 *First 
Edition* and XHTML 1.1, not between XHTML 1.1 and XHTML 1.0 *Second 
Edition*.

I still think the W3C should update the XHTML Modularization Second 
Edition working draft (XHTML 1.1 was based on the First Edition) to 
include the ID, CLASS and possibly the TITLE attributes on every element.
