Not really.  `org-id' usually "just works" for me, so I never had to dig
anything deeper there.  But, as far as I recall, this is meant to add
the new ID on the IDs file.  Considering your capture template is likely
to be on your agenda files, this is probably not going to be of
concern (meaning here these files will eventually be scanned and the ID
found).  But, if it is, you could then go with `%(org-id-get nil t)`,
right?  It does seem to be more appropriate either way, I agree.

I have stored here in my init file a message from the list describing
the procedure Org uses to try to find an ID, you might find it useful:

Regarding the second issue, of course, you should end up with a single
properties drawer, and the template should ensure that.
