There is an unambiguous definition of the allowed id syntax:

"The value must be unique amongst all the IDs in the element's home subtree and
must contain at least one character. The value must not contain any space
characters."
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/elements.html#the-id-attribute

The requirements seem perfectly clear, so I'm going to assume you thought this
was an actual omission in the spec (maybe due to other specs' tendency to use
formal grammars for everything).  Since there is no such omission, I'm
resolving the bug as INVALID.  If you actually think the id attribute's allowed
values need to be defined in some other way, please reopen the bug and the
editor will look at it in due course (although he'll probably close WONTFIX
unless you give very good arguments).
