I didn't want to use it in selectors. I have mentioned this to show that CSS is aware of IDs, so contrary to Björn I think it is meaningful.

A use-case for this is something I have discussed in [1]. However, I don't think a specific use-case is required. If a type "url" exists then it is equally justified to also have a type "id". It follows from the fact that all languages CSS can work on have the ID as a fundamental notion.
