Not sure I understand this. xmlsec first parses the XML
using libxml2 and most of ID attributes are registered
*before* xmlsec code is executed. xmlsec does register
ID attributes for XMLEnc and XMLDSig schema automatically
and it is one of the first things xmlsec is doing.

I think you are mistaken or I don't understand what you mean.

A *small* example that demonstrates your problem will be helpful.
