The `id` attribute should be added to the IDL for `HTMLElement`; it doesn't
seem to be there in the latest editor's[1] or working[2] drafts.

AFAIK, this has been a reflected property for as long as there have been specs
for HTMLElement, certainly since 1999[3]. I believe the current
Recommendation-level spec for it is DOM2 HTML[4].

A huge number of sites would fail in a browser that didn't reflect this
attribute.
