Uniquely identifying PWAs with the web app manifest id property

There's a new optional `id` property as part of the web app manifest spec, that allows you to explicitly define the identifier used for your PWA. Adding the `id` property to the manifest removes the dependency on the `start_url` or the location of the manifest, and makes it possible for them to be updated in the future.
