Hi Stefan,

the magic of id: links is just that they are globally unique, and that
they will find the right target even if you move the target entry
from one file to another.  Therefore, export to HTML should  
automatically insert the correct file name.  And this is just how it  
works for me.

File a has

* headline 1
   :ID:       5E58A8EE-0DFC-4D05-BA53-D6B969919049

In file b I am inserting

here is the [[id:5E58A8EE-0DFC-4D05-BA53-D6B969919049][headline 1]]

and in HTML this becomes a link

<a href="a.html#ID-5E58A8EE-0DFC-4D05-BA53-D6B969919049">headline 1</a>

Try M-x org-id-update-id-location to fix ID confusion.
