ISSUE-86 (atom-id-stability): HTML5 relaxes Atom requirement on atom:id stability [HTML 5 spec]

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/86

Raised by: Julian Reschke
On product: HTML 5 spec

>From http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#atom:

"9...

Otherwise
    Let id be a user-agent-defined undereferenceable yet globally unique valid absolute URL. The same absolute URL should be generated for each run of this algorithm when given the same input. Let has-alternate be false."

But RFC 4287 states:

"When an Atom Document is relocated, migrated, syndicated, republished, exported, or imported, the content of its atom:id element MUST NOT change." -- http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc4287.html#rfc.section.4.2.6

So it appears that HTML5 tries to relax that requirement.

Suggested fix: either just reference the requirement in the base spec, or make it a "must".
