If accepted, we will have the id uniqueness that the xml:id 
specification defines:

"The values of all attributes of type “ID” (which includes all xml:id 
attributes) within a document are unique."

For packages this means that ID must be unique within a single sub file

Since ODF defines file format rather than a specification for an office 
application this is out of the scope of the ODF specification.
