Browsers don't support xml:id and AFAIK don't want to. Having more than  
one attribute for IDness increases complexity all over the place and  
doesn't give any benefit.

Browsers have also always allowed any value in id="" (also in XML). So the  
spec change in HTML was just aligning with reality.
