 The description for `$editor_id` says:

 > HTML ID attribute value for the textarea and TinyMCE. Can only be

 While `$editor_id` can't contain a `[` character (introduced in [27950],
 which does a `_deprecated_argument()` call), as far as I can tell, there
 are no other restrictions on `$editor_id` as long as it is a legal value
 for an HTML `@id`.

 Additionally, `wp_editor()` passes `$editor_id` on to
 `_WP_Editors::editor()`, and the description for `$editor_id` param for
 that method specifies a different restriction on the legal values for it:

 > ID for the textarea and TinyMCE and Quicktags instances (can contain
 only ASCII letters and numbers).
