Does a bagID define a URI fragment?

The RDF spec states that it is legal to have an ID and a bagID as attributes of a single description. But the XML 1.0 spec states that an element may only have one attribute of type ID. Therefore either ID or bagID isn't a real ID, and therefore it doesn't define a real URI fragment. 

The RDF spec goes on to provide a bagID example where a description contains an aboutEach attribute referring to a bagID. In light of the above, and the fact that aboutEach is supposed to refer to a URI, is the example really valid?
