I don't think it's relevant, since xml:id is for XML only, and CTM is
specifically meant *not* to be an XML syntax. But I think this is
still useful, because it means we should probably make this clear in
the CTM requirements. Right now it's taken for granted that the syntax
is not going to be an XML syntax, and, as this shows, it can't really
be taken for granted.
