I have difficulty to answer. I am a bit confused because you disagree  
with something you did with success.

  I will try to explain why. The issue if I remember well has been  
raised specifically because we said at the start that you didn't  
comply with one of the guidelines about Classes of Products for xml:id.
I have worked closely with Norman Walsh and the document which has  
been finally produced by the WG is conformant for this guideline.

When we filled the ICS for xml:id

For the xml:id Version 1.0 Specification located at

The resulting ICS for class of Products is:

Requirement 03: Identify who or what will implement the specification.
Status: Yes
Comment:  In the introduction explain that the xml:id
                      specification gives a uniform mechanism
                      for XML processors and XML document to
                      create identifiers for XML Schema and DTD.

The introduction of xml:id explained your class of products.

This was the excellent work of Norman Walsh. Kudos to him.

Maybe the XML Core WG has in memory a previous discussion when it had  
difficulty to understand how to proceed, but Norman Walsh did it well.
