I love how the link I pasted went to a different place before, stupid

Given the correct section yes, the id attribute is irrelevant to the
discussion here. The id element seems to be required on all events we send
(should be composing and displayed I believe) so we should fix that.

Like I said, I haven't been keeping up recently, but I seem to recall that
being the state of things when I last was.
