Hello, Christian.
Thanks for the tip!
It is indeed a very good solution.

For now, I’m improvising the one-key approach with this


(setq org-speed-commands-user
      '(("j" my/org-quick-refile)))

(defun my/org-quick-refile ()
  "Refile subtree using list of predefined targets."

  (let ((choice (car (read-multiple-choice
                      "Refile where?"
                      '((?j "Journal")
                        (?a "Project 1 Notes")
                        (?s "Project 2 Notes"))))))
    (let ((id
            ((= ?a choice) "eb952006-71f4-4fc3-93d0-9f0cb61aed5b")
            ((= ?s choice) "3e444863-a617-414d-97bf-31fdd888b4dc")
            ((= ?j choice) "journal"))))
      (if id
          (if (string= id "journal")
            (my/org-refile-to-id id ""))))))

(defun my/org-refile-to-id (id &optional todo)
  "Refile current subtree to subtree with ID."
  (interactive (list (read-string "ID: ")))
  (when todo (org-todo todo))
  (let ((anchor (ignore-errors (org-id-get-create))))
    (org-id-goto id)
    (zap-to-char 1 (string-to-char " "))
    (move-beginning-of-line nil)
    (if anchor
        (org-id-goto anchor)
     (message "This was the last one."))))

P.S.: Please ignore the ‘my/org-journal-pre-resolve-with-header’---it’s
a /very/ ugly newbie hack that I commited what I would like to believe
ages ago.
