@ElMiko - it's mostly fine in that beta as you found, it just had a few quirks that needed some polishing. This is the comments from the related source code commit
meme did for the next release:
Update Insert ID and Insert Hyperlink so that if you select text and apply it
does not delete the other attributes, so that the selection is restored after
inserting to allow you to easily insert the other attribute or change it, to
have even selected text update the enclosing anchor tag attributes instead of
inserting another pair.
