That is solely about #foo#bar (selecting an element which has two or more IDs
using those two or more IDs in the selector) and not really relevant to CSS
mentioning xml:id or not.

As UAs currently have not implemented this mechanims and most UAs do not even
support multiple IDs on an element using xml:id, DOM Level 3 Core and 
specific ID attributes, it is likely that this feature will therefore be made
non normative.

Kind regards,
