Although I am too late for last call comments I was wondering if the WG
could clarify which ID attribute should get presedence when multiple are
applied to a single element.

That is invalid per the XML specification but it does not make the
document ill-formed so UAs which do not use a validating parser need a
way to handle this.

The multiple ID question has been brought up before on this mailing
list[1][2].

[1] seems to be ignored. At least, I could not find any response to the
e-mail in question.

Also, as mentioned before, this causes problems for UAs[3].
