The trouble with that is that it isn't clear who needs to use it.
Anyone who has the forethought to use xml:id can declare their own
ids in the internal subset as well; people who want to reference a
document they don't control need to use something other than ids anyway.

James Clark's idea of xml:idattrs makes more sense to me.

To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all.  There are
no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language that
they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful. --The Hobbit
