Being that this is Emacs, you can do almost anything you want, with a
little Elisp practice.  ;)

For example, you could write some custom move command which would
automatically add the new folder to some variable or file with a list of
folders to add to places for org-id to look in from now on.

However perhaps we should take a step back and ask ourselves if this is
a good approach?  And IMHO, starting to scatter files here and there
throughout the filesystem is not a good idea.  Even if you implement
above mentioned custom Elisp, it adds (IMO, needless) complexity.

Therefore I would think long and hard if that is actually really
necessary, before starting to go down that path.  Just my $0.02.
