  libxml2 implements xml:id, maybe not as of the last draft, but very
closely. It also has DTD, RelaxNG and an incomplete W3C XML Schemas support.
Support was added in version 2.6.9 released Apr 18 2004. If you use recent
Linux, MacOS X or a Solaris your version of libxml2 is likely to have
xml:id support enabled by default.

  The XPointer/XPath/XSLT/XMLDSig implementations based on libxml2 should
already make use of xml:id if present in the instances. I'm not sure about
librsvg SVG implementation it would need some checking.
