Right, but my point was that it would be wrong to use such a document
with existing parsers *anyway*, because it contains the reserved name
xml:id. The whole point of "reserved" is that you can't expect
appropriate behaviour from processors that don't conform to whatever
spec provides a definition of the reserved name.
