Seems to me this is something the SWD WG ought to have a position on, 
since it has two key deliverables: SKOS (a language for talking about 
representations of topics and their inter-relationships) and RDFa (a 
language to allow XHTML documents to describe their topic in 
machine-friendly form). If we can't always deploy the two together, we 
need a pretty compelling explanation about why, when etc the two are 
compatible. If both are to be W3C recommendations, it seems natural to 
use them together.

Last time I raised this, the consensus seemed to be:

* if a SKOS concept URI with a #foo is de-referencable to XHTML without 
redirection, then id="foo" should never be used in the HTML, although 
about= is ok.
* the same URI could de-ref to RDF/XML
* not sure what to say about redirections, or #-free URIs for concepts

cheers,

Dan
