 @lancewillett I retested these both and they work as expected. Great job!

 I found one wrinkle that I didn't think of before. If a custom menu is not
 assigned, the `id` won't be there to match the `aria-controls`. In that
 case, it relies on `wp_page_menu` instead of `wp_nav_menu`. I don't think
 `wp_page_menu` has a parameter to add an `id`, so we'd have to do
 something like:

  *  Add ID attributes to the first <ul> occurence in wp_page_menu.
  *  Helps ARIA attributes match proper elements.
 function twentyfourteen_add_menuid( $ulid ) {
         return preg_replace( '/<ul>/', '<ul id="primary-menu">', $ulid, 1
 add_filter( 'wp_page_menu','twentyfourteen_add_menuid' );

 Not the cleanest solution, and maybe there's a better way I'm not thinking
 of right now. Sorry I didn't think of this before.
