It would be very handy to have org-edna accept ID values for lists of "ids(...)" within its properties that do feature an optional "id:" prefix.

Therefore, this should be a correct line:

:TRIGGER: ids(foo id:bar-baz) [...]

In this example, "foo" is still a classic value as it is supported to this date. However, the "id:bar-baz" value is an Org mode link to the heading with the ID property "bar-baz". Org-edna should ignore the "id:" prefix in this case and accept it similar to the line that is fully representing the current situation:

:TRIGGER: ids(foo bar-baz) [...]

The advantage for the user is, that she is able to create navigation-able links between headings. This would simplify the creation of back-links as explained, e.g., in this feature request: https://github.com/toshism/org-super-links/issues/21

Thanks you for your great tool!
