Why does the user need to remember the post_id ? The autocomplete
feature works if you write only the relevant part (in this case the
post_name) in both cases.
By applying your reasoning, the users would need to remember the exact
url (including the http protocol, the domain name, the port if any,
etc) they already visited.
If you have any studies to backup your claims or that proves me
completely wrong, please share. I am interested.
