[uf-discuss] clarification request on usage of id attributes in XMDP

Using @id is useful so that people can link to particular terms, but  
I think it would be unwise for any tool to rely on them (as the XMDP  
spec says that @id does not need to match the name of the term being  
defined - which is important, given that hCard profiles define both  
the 'class' attribute and a 'class' class). And if no tools are going  
to rely on them, then it shouldn't actually be harmful to leave them
