I'm just getting into Emacs/Org-Mode. It's clearly an amazing system and
the linking via UUID is very useful. My question is: why is linking by UUID
(and, more generally, the creation of properties drawers) limited to
headlines, and not to sub-elements like list elements or paragraphs?
Doesn't all the necessary structural information exist to assign UUIDs to
everything?

The reason I'm asking is that getting into Org-Roam, the linking for which
relies on Org UUIDs for headlines. If UUIDs were available for all elements
of an Org file, that will allow for more granular linking behavior.

Thanks,
Alan

You can use <<some-anchor-name>> to make it possible to link to any
place in a document.

Best wishes,

It does not work globally though. One cannot just put
[[id:some-anchor-name]] link in other file.

Best,

That was my thought as well.
