Hmm...  Do I miss something?  Who recommends to use ‘id’ attribute to specify 
the licence?  The only place where ‘id’ is significant for LibreJS is <table 
id="jslicense-labels1">, is not it?  This usage is fully conformant with ‘id’ 
attribute purpose.

There actually already is a well supported (by Mozilla and Google) and widely 
used technique to provide sources (and debugging symbols) for minified 
javascripts and programs compiled to JS from other languages — so called 
*‘source maps’*.  It’s specs says nothing about copyright terms, but (a) in 
conjunction with licence headers in provided sources we have all required info, 
(b) why not extend it?

Its first working implementations dates back to 2010—2011, so I have no idea, 
why GNU LibreJS ignores its existence.
