I am now making this a formal comment to which I would request a 
response during disposition of comments:

Requirement 5 of" xml:id Requirements" states, "The solution must not 
inadvertently apply IDness to constructs which are intended not to have it."

Placing the id attribute in the XML namespace, has the effect of 
inadvertently applying IDness to constructs which are intended not to 
have it through the intermediary of canonicalization. I therefore 
believe that the current draft of xml:id does not meet its stated 
requirements, and request that the working group revise the draft so 
that this requirement is satisfied before issuing it as a recommendation.
