I don't understand how that would help. The problem is not with the
templateid attribute, it's with any ID attribute. For example:
<input id="field[x]" ...>
...if you want to give the fields a unique ID in each repetition block.
(Also, multiple ID attributes per element would also be a problem in most
schema languages, and square brackets are a problem in any ID attribute,
not just "id".)
