Definitly # 2. The best argument is a semantic one, see Webster:

id (id) n. Psychoanal
1. the part of the psyche that is the source
of unconscious and instinctive impulses
that seek satisfaction in accordance
with the pleasure principle.Compare EGO
(DEF. 2), superego .
[1924; < L id it, as a trans. of G Es lit., it]

ID [1] (ie'dee') n. pl. <ID's, IDs>
1. a means of identification, as a document
containing information regarding the
bearer's identity.
