Is it possible to use "Extern_ID" instead of "account.account,ID" while importing a CSV?

Hi I am trying to understand how to use Extern_IDs to import properties:

I have the following CSV line to import (note the value_reference value of "account.account,4"):



However, as this is being imported, the ID of that account might no longer be the 4, so it won't work.

I would like to use the Extern ID "account_account_4" instead of "account.account,4", as defined in ir_model_data table:

9280 | 1 | 2015-05-29 13:31:09.894337 | 2015-05-29 13:31:09.894337 | 1 | f | account_account_4 | 2015-05-29 13:31:10 | 2015-05-29 13:31:10 | __export__ | account.account | 4

Is that actually possible?
