Comment (by hnla):

 Yep this is the about the only 'edge case'  of concern that these tokens
 are used elsewhere.

 The term 'rogue' is apt though as I would say this would be an unwise and
 shortsighted thing to do definitely not something I would do if I were
 using global.js in it's default state in fact to re-use an establish class
 or id  in this manner is just asking for trouble.

 Question is, and as asked earlier by Boone, how much do we care about this
 possible edge case breaking child theme? the simple notion of breaking a
 child theme  is obviously something we would never want to knowingly do
 but in this instance I am going to say that given they(the rogue dev)
 ought really not to have done this that we don't accept this as a reason
 not to go ahead; the benefits to doing this are vast and also I fear if we
 can't do this then if child themes or bp-default require the present js
 functionality they will not be able to move to a fully realised HTML5

 I'm still concerned though that there isn't a more genuine use case that
 would cause, or present, problems not thought of yet.
