An id is an atomic symbol (= variable name).  Location is a path, and allows you to climb down inside more complex structures.   You don't have to assign to an 'id' using <assign>.  You can replace part of its value (a subtree).

Subject: data id verse assign location

Why does a data item have an id while an assign has a location?  Would one assume that "location" references the same slot as data.id<http://data.id>?  If so, could we consider using only name, either location or id and be consistent?
