  I'm personally against relaxing that checking myself. 
If you use xml:id on a receiving side, this mean your application is
interested in providing ID lookup, and IMHO errors should be reported
to the application. You should have the capability to desactivate xml:id
if gathering the ID table is too much for your memory constraints, but
loweing the spec level of checking is IMHO not a good idea.
