There has been a thread about that recently, see "CSS selectors and 
xml:id" at:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2005Apr/thread.html#316 and
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2005May/thread.html#16

If I recall correctly, the outcome was no, because such a thing would 
prevent CSS 2.1 from exiting CR?
