this is a very late reply, but hope its still useful.

The dwc xml guidelines already give examples on how to relate Identification with Taxon and Occurrence instances for class usages as xml: 

Those examples simple use the ID terms (occurrenceID,taxonID) on the Identification instance to link out to the other classes and there is no further relationship class involved.
