  Hum, not sure I catch your point. Mine is that WG are busy, and 
if getting a NOTE in /TR is relatively easy, getting a REC needs 
a Working Group scheduled to do it. Doing XML Id would be similar to
do XML Base (retroffitting a change using the gap left in the 1.0
infrastructure) and as much as I would like to see people agreeing
quickly on it and getting it out in a couple of month, I know from
experience it is not possible (again I would love to be proven wrong !)
