But the point of this argument was that xml:id was not necessary.. so
how can the parser know which attributes are ID-bearing without a DTD,
XSD, or xml:id attribute?

Or was your intention to suggest that the application should build the
hashtable? In that case, I would be disappointed if the parser didn't do
it for me, because it's a very common operation and I'm lazy.
