A unique ID question ?

I was wondering if the value of an ID attribute has to be unique within a 
document or only within a fragment. The pb is that i have a master document 
that contains some external system entities and each of the entity is a 
fragment that contains some ID attributes. If my processor includes all the 
fragments it may happen that some ID attributes have the same value.

What do i have to do ? Provide an IDentificstion schema that should avoid ID 
value clash or rename each of the attribute when i include each fragment to 
avoid the clash (with a prefix for example) ?
