Bzzzzzt. Those two aspects are not necessarily linked. RelaxNG can and  
does provide identity checking as explained in the "RELAX NG DTD  
Compatibility" specification, it simply is not required to do anything  
but check that the name is unique (the infoset needn't be augmented as  
a result).

It is therefore perfectly fine to rely on RelaxNG to impose ID  
constraints. There were rumours of the RelaxNG team getting together  
to work on a more powerful framework for assigning identity but that  
was years ago so I think we can discount that now.
