Valve cover PCV breather fell off

Look at fig. 23 and 24. This happened to me and I was kinda freaking out about it, but I did what they say and used some plastic superglue to put it back on. I guess it's no big deal? What happens if it falls off again, internally? I was thinking that the heat and oil will fatigue the superglue and it'll fall off. But at the same time, the piece held onto the valve cover just fine until I bumped it (without much force) so I guess it's not too stressed in there.

After searching around seems like its not too uncommon

Does anyone have any long-term experience with this?
