IDs on MODS elements

If I'm reading the MODS schema correctly, a few elements can carry ID 
attributes, but most cannot. Is there a principle for which elements have 
an ID attribute defined, or has it been defined as needs arise?

Thanks,

Re: IDs on MODS elements

"As needs arise".  There are id attributes on those element for which id atttributes have been explicitly requested. They're  mostly for the case when a MODS record is used within a METS record.
