One of many nits.  I had a working assumption we could add words so
that an RDF ID would be defined as an XML ID which isn't clear since
RDF doesn't use words, a DTD or even XML Schema to define the syntax
terms.  I'm just trying to fix bigger nits!

Some RDF/XML parsers check the IDs as XML IDs (no duplicates allowed,
restrictions on allowed chars in the ID) and some don't.
