I think you are both talking about the same thing but have different
judgment calls about it.

Say you want to export an org file, then share the link to a friend to a
heading, like https://mysite/#orgd260798

Imagine that for some reason, you re export the file, then new ids are
generated and the links becomes broken.

Nicolas Goaziou, I know you understand this and propose to use CUSTOM_ID
to make those ids static. But IIUC, Samuel Wales does not know in
advance what heading he will share, so he would have to add CUSTOM_ID
everywhere, just in case. This sounds like a lot of unnecessary work.

The solution of tec¹ appears to be a new generation of the html ids based
on the heading content rather than apparently randomly generated, making
the generated link become the same across new generations.

I hope it clarified the discussion.

My best,
