HI All,
After discussions on IRC, it has become clear that we need to rename
the widget element's id attribute:

[17:24] <Hixie> the real question is not what allowed values it has,
but whether it should be used for CSS #id matching or DOM
getElementById() matching
[17:24] <Hixie> if it shouldn't, then don't call it id=""
[17:24] <Hixie> if it shoul, do
[17:24] <tlr-off> or for any other matching-by-id, that is
[17:24] <tlr-off> indeed
[17:25] <tlr-off> e.g., xpath

We don't use widget id in the manner above. Any suggestions?

Kind regards,
Marcos
