I know; and from a purely aesthetics ;-) POV, I also prefer a reference
to the "component" rather than the "id" which is a concatenation (of
a name and a version) that exists for practical reasons.

But isn't the change also for a practical reason, namely to avoid
confusing artefacts?

Hence I thought that the focus should be on the "id", contrary to e.g.
the web site whose primary focus is to document the "component".

Perhaps.  It really depends on the issues which the change is trying
to solve; the new scheme should be a solution that does not create
new confusions.
