There once was a discussion on this topic here:

I am a bit worried: So far, I got 125870 manually set ID properties
in my Org-mode files. 

To me, using :ID: was straight forward since I never read about any
other ID when I began with Org-mode in 2011.

Many features required me to have an :ID: and no feature I stumbled
upon required me to have something else as reference:
id:this-is-an-id, making references using org-store-link, and so

So let's search through the manual:

Well, either this did not exist in 2011 or I was not paying
attention. I never faced any disadvantage, using ID properties

Do I really need to migrate and risk broken links? Or is there a
safe way to move to CUSTOM_ID?

Are there advantages when I switch to CUSTOM_IDs?

Do I really have to have a CUSTOM_ID *and* an ID set for being able
to reference any heading via human-readable ids *and* features like
org-store-link and so on?
