What would you expect to be the output of the below?

import QtQuick 2.9
import QtQuick.Window 2.2

Window {
    visible: true
    width: 640
    height: 480
    title: qsTr("Hello World")

    Column {
        Repeater {
            model: 10
            Text { id: myText; text: "I'm item " + index }
        Text { id: last; text: "Last"}


On my machine, the output is
	qrc:/main.qml:21: ReferenceError: myText is not defined
which is a great example on why you cannot rely on id's as item names. 
The id is only unique at type time.
