W3C has a candidate proposal for specifying the rules for
the id="" attribute.
Note how it says that W3C "licenses" the attribute "xml:id"
for this purpose. Apparently, the purpose of this document is
to more cleanly separate xml:id from other types of attribute. This
will likely add the ID type to the DOM spec, as attributes are Nodes, too.
This probably won't affect how we use the id attribute, but
it is an interesting read, and might help with decisions on how
we use it.
