From discussions I had with Sam, Scott, and Jack:

To solve the problem, it would suffice to find a reflexive domain \(X\) with a retract onto \([0, 1]\).

This is because if you have a reflexive domain \(X\), that is, an \(X\) with a continuous surjective map \(f :: X \rightarrow X^X\), and \(A\) is a retract of \(X\), then there’s also a continuous surjective map \(g :: X \rightarrow A^X\).

Proof: If \(A\) is a retract of \(X\) then we have a retraction \(r::X\rightarrow A\) and a section \(s::A \rightarrow X\) with \(r\circ s = 1_A\). Construct \(g(x) := r \circ f(x)\). To show that \(g\) is a surjection consider an arbitrary \(q \in A^X\). Thus, \(s \circ q :: X \rightarrow X\). Since \(f\) is a surjection there must be some \(x\) with \(f(x) = s \circ q\). It follows that \(g(x) = r \circ f(x) = r \circ s \circ q = q\). Since \(q\) was arbitrary, \(g\) is also a surjection.
