If id were allowed, that would allow id collisions, ... could be used for attribution confusion, navigation hazards and other tricky annoyances
Really? I mean, really, really!?
I know that lore has it that duplicate ids in html is verboten -- although HTML5 relaxed the specification to:
The value must be unique amongst all the IDs in the element's home subtree and must contain at least one character
with duplicates in a given subtree being ignored. -- but is the possibility of duplication -- accidental or deliberate -- so heinous that we must prevent it at all costs?
Isn't the worst that could happen is that the duplicates might both get styled the same way?
I could (vaguely) understand the restriction if this place was a JQuery-driven game-show site, like so many are these days; but as-is, and seems likely as-always-will-be, isn't the banning of ids just another piece of over-zealous control-freakery?

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.I'm with torvalds on this Agile (and TDD) debunked I told'em LLVM was the way to go. But did they listen!
