Monkey Face is on a distinguished road
I would like to see more ID by use work across items. So when you read a scroll of detect invisible, you'll then know which staff is also detect invisible and so forth.

Regarding the idea that the scroll/potion has to have an effect before it is ID'd by use, I think it should also ID if you are resisting the effect or the effect it cures. Thus, if a kobald drinks a potion of poison or neutralize poison, it is ID'd, even though it has no effect. Otherwise under you proposal, 2 ID object scrolls will need to be wasted on it.
