I basically wanted to raise awareness that the access module needs some 
kind of language to suggest that ID resolution is something that can be 
overloaded by the consuming profile because when this module is actually 
*used* in combination with XHTML2 (which adopts XForms), the accessibility 
features need to be usable with dynamically repeated content. 

XForms 1.1 already contains the description of how ID resolution works on 
repeated content, so it is surely not necessary to specify it, but making 
reference to it would aid in the description of why ID resolution method 
should be definable by the consuming profile.  XML Events 2 certainly 
seems to take this approach when allowing the consuming profile to define 
the context for XPath evaluations such as for the if attribute.

But I can live with it not being mentioned if the XHTML2 working group 
feels it is best to cover this possibility only in XHTML2+XForms.
