I'd rather have a variable, e.g., `org-latex-custom-id-as-label'. When
this variable is non-nil, Org uses raw custom ID value instead of
auto-generated value for labels.

Its docstring should explain the limitations that are introduced when
using this variable, and in which cases it is interesting to enable it
(i.e, your use-case). IOW the docstring should be informative about the

So, it's basically your patch with an additional variable and its
docstring. Do you want to take care of it?

OK. Since you had developed this idea in another paragraph, I thought
there was another reason. Never mind then.
