I don't think we resolved on this yet, and I changed my mind because of an argument given by email after the last conf call discussion. (I can't find the reference right now, sorry.)

That is, lifting this restriction on ID selectors would be nice but it's more important that they are consistent with class selectors, which are definitely delim(.) + ident. Lifting the restriction on class selectors too would mean dealing with number and dimension tokens, let's not go there.
