Yeah, it's the same (I'm me too an DTD aficionados..) but effectively
you're in right  to specificate it...

Actually, the problem is not that you can't have two input elements with
the same id, but that the for attribute of the label element allows you
to reference only one ID instead of several (for DTD aficionados: "for"
is of type IDREF instead of IDREFS).
