Yes filtering of title -> url is implied along with editing urls and meta tags from the admin.
But one other issue to keep in mind with db ids in the urls is exposure. I prefer not to expose the database ids at least with the urls generated for search engines to improve security.
What's the reason of your ids preference over the totally static ones?
It may look simpler in terms for the url decoder having the id in the url but if you think about it is pretty much the same with the totally static links as you use some sort of signature. The only problem I faced was with configuration on some cases where combinations of categories, products and manufacturers were using short names eg:
then if I don't configure the urls by combination of brand/category the url generator will create cars and cars2 to distinguish while with the ids it won't be a problem but the url ends up longer
