Oh, an OID.  Yes, that could work, if you could get someone to agree  
to be authoritative (you need to avoid collisions - OIDs do this by  
assigning each organization a second level identifier that is unique,  
but I don't think that would be what we'd want).

Well, let's see if I can get back to bed (we're having weather I  
don't even think I can give a name for - sleet, thunder, wind).
