But there is nowhere where id in a lone element is proposed, so this
argument is not very compelling not to use <a> for that purpose.  <a>
was used for that semantically before, while <span> is explicitely
described as being relevant in relation to its content.  For those
reasons, it still seems to me that <a> is better than <span> and
actually the best choice among elements.

Using <a> this way makes me a little uncomfortable, but
I don't have a strong objection.
