I suggested the patch under the (wrong) assumption that the id starting
with a number would be invalid in HTML 5 as well. However, I just
learned that this is valid in HTML 5. It's invalid in HTML 4.01 (or
lower) as well as in XHTML though. So that sheds a different light on
this. [1]

I'd still suggest to change that though mainly with the argument that
browsers (and tools) which rely on the standard more closely and which
do not support (and also do not fall back to) the HTML 5 style would not
work at all with that link. I also think it's quite unlikely that there
are many (if any) direct links out there which would break. So with the
change we are actually resolving problems for more standard compliant
and also for older browsers working on that page.
