A benefit of using xml:id is that after having updated the schema that
defines the XML namespace to specify that xml:id has a type xs:ID, any
application that relies on this schema would support xml:id without
requiring any update.

I don't know how many software do behave that way, but this seems like a
worthy benefit!
