I certainly wouldn't assume that an attribute called "id" is declared as 
an ID unless I have evidence that this is the case, especially if the 
information about the XML comes from one of the world's very top experts.

But more importantly, I still think that seeing two duplicate IDs is not 
evidence of a problem with the way the technical writers/taggers have 
been trained, it is a problem with the tools they are using. The tools 
should stop it happening.
