What qualifies as "lots"? Should we keep looking for more  id/header
use cases in the wild?

id/headers would also seem to fall under Universal Access in the
Design Principles document: "Design features for universal access.
This does not mean that features should be omitted entirely if not all
users can fully make use of them, but alternate mechanisms should be
provided when possible."
