Demonstration of differing behaviour with #id and #name

<a xlink:href="#…"> within inline SVG links to a local IRI for a target resource within the same document. In Safari 8.0.8 and nightly builds up to at least Webkit r.188939, this works when the IRI uses the name attribute of the target anchor – but the name attribute is deprecated in HTML5 in favour of using element IDs. However, xlink:href does not link successfully when the IRI uses the id attribute of the target resource (whether it is an <a> anchor or an ordinary element). In contrast, Chrome, Firefox and earlier versions of Safari (eg 5.1) work as expected with IDs.

Possibly similar to Webkit Bugzilla 91520, but does not require target resource to be external.
