Just a minor nit, but it looks like Pandoc produces both the id but
also an anchor tag (below). However, it does not produce an <a
name=''>, which I believe is valid HTML. I don't thing browsers key on
the id tag of the header.

<h2 id="header-identifiers-in-html"><a href="#TOC-header-identifiers-in-html">
