re: Hey Jordan, I agree, but this is not a full-fledged application. It's just a demo of how to start writing a custom component. Also, please provide...

Sure, I recognize that it's just a demo and there may be some merit in just getting things out there for people to see. That said, it's a demo targeted toward a fairly beginner level audience. These subtle behaviors are often not addressed in anything new programmers will learn, and I feel that it's a disservice to allow poor programming habits to show up in an example meant for teaching people. Arguably, you should never be okay with poor practices in any code you write, if they could be easily avoidable; but this problem is even worse when you have an audience that may have never seen any of the techniques and will learn bad habits while trying to understand everything going on in the example.

Short version: it being a demo is precisely the reason you should follow best practices.

Edit: first sentence in this doc developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/W...

Exactly — this may not be a full-fledged application, but if a new dev comes here, reads this, recreates this toggle with non-unique IDs, and reuse a bunch of that component on their page/app, they will end up with multiple non-unique IDs on their page. Its a bad practice, and a poor example for new developers.
