 to have an ID value added.

 Yes, the proper way is to require the IDs, that was already in but was
 reverted :)

 > ID values in HTML5 can be just about anything...

 Right, `sanitize_html_class()` actually sanitizes for XHTML IDs. Class
 names and IDs in HTML 5 can contain almost any character, however that
 brings problems/complications when using them in CSS and JS. Also don't
 see the point of having:
 <div id="官方中文站点" class="为您提供">...
 and hope that plugin and theme authors would be able to use them. Also
 don't even want to think of what would happen if the browser is not using
 UTF-8 encoding.
