I suggested the patch under the (wrong) assumption that the id starting 
with a number would be invalid in HTML 5 as well. However, I just 
learned that this is valid in HTML 5. It's invalid in HTML 4.01 (or 
lower) as well as in XHTML though. So that sheds a different light on 
this. [1]

I'd still suggest to change that though mainly with the argument that 
browsers (and tools) which rely on the standard more closely and which 
do not support (and also do not fall back to) the HTML 5 style would not 
work at all with that link. I also think it's quite unlikely that there 
are many (if any) direct links out there which would break. So with the 
change we are actually resolving problems for more standard compliant 
and also for older browsers working on that page.
