Hi, Sascha!

I am sorry but this function was a hack :( The question about this 
problem is
described in FAQ section 3.2: http://www.aleksey.com/xmlsec/faq.html
Basically, there are two options:
    1) use DTD (you may have very simple DTD that will spcify only ID 
    see example in FAQ);
    2) use a hack based on xmlAddID() function
I would recommend the first way. It's more general and interoperable.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
