 Updated patch. As pointed out in Slack, see
 this requires to patch `accordion.js`.
 We should try to be HTML agnostic and detect if there's any element
 intended to act as a specific toggle control. I'd say to just look for the
 first element with `aria-expanded`. Open to suggestions.

 In `customize-nav-menus.js` tried to store some elements to avoid getting
 them multiple times.

 Reworked the arrow indicator. TL;DR noticed a weird bug in NVDA: it didn't
 announce "expanded/collapsed". Turned out it was caused by the CSS
 generated dashicon which is currently overlaid on the button, see


 When its content changes from `\f140` to `\f142` NVDA gets someway
 confused and doesn't announce the "expanded/collapsed" aria attribute
 change of the underlying button. Tried several things and ended up putting
 the arrow inside the button in a `span` with `role=presentation`. No
 visual changes.
