Take care, id are special property and they can be multiple based on the

// A.qml
   id: component

// B.qml
       id: toto

What would be the id to be used for the A object with both id component and
toto? This is why you probably want to give it a UUID for the objectname or
print the whole hierarchy of parent to discover which one it is. The
objectname also make it easy to find an object with the property. But
setting a property with the id literal is a bad idea.
