Testing with a large set of ids is a good demonstration, but not proof.
 Forming a set of *all* possible values within a certain range is proof.

However, XOR does work (OR definitely does not) — it's a 1-to-1
transformation (reversible as you say.)

Additionally, it still gives the unnaturally low collision rate when
using sequential addresses, so there's no objection there.
