As I explained, it is a system where the back-end generates its own
references, and relies on `org-export-get-reference' as a robust
fall-back system. Have a look at `org-texinfo--get-node' function to see
what I mean.

I don't think such a system would preserve properties offered by
`org-export-get-reference', for example in non-latin languages. Also,
header content is not stable enough: when you're linking to the custom
ID, you may be able to change the title and yet preserve the link.

However, your proposal may be an improvement over
`org-export-get-reference' in the context of "ox-html.el", that I don't
know. That's the second way I wrote about.
