Preserve styling for tags used in custom code when using "Clean Up" feature

It would be phenomenal if Webflow recognized tags used in custom code and did not purge them when the Clean Up feature is used (in the Style Manager).

I suppose I’ll have to create a Style Guide page to avoid this issue (by creating a dummy Webflow element with the tag applied, said tag avoids the Clean Up purge), though I wonder if this tag-recognition and avoidance is a logical user experience Webflow should consider implementing. Cheers.

One solution is to use data-attributes instead of classes (Harder to “break” the code if someone rename -or- clean class).

$("[id=hello]")

No way to know the selectors from custom code (How exactly? – sound to complex).
