OK. This makes sense, thank you.

Again, the file name is relevant, so using id links instead of file
links in this situation doesn't buy us anything.

Regenerating ".org-id-locations" is not magical. It looks into
a predefined set of files. If the renaming moves the file out of this
set, there is no way it can associate again the ID to that file.

IOW, I wouldn't trust an ID more than a file name.
