There's no point in having multiple "URIs" as a way of doubling
the space. Maybe you could have multiple entity tags for a given
entity, though.

However, I'm now leaning toward just allowing the 'content-id' 
(the official MIME version, not the CDF version) to be used
instead of an entity tag inside an IF-MATCH, etc.

After all, content-ID is a globally unique identifier. If you
want one that's guaranteed to be based on MD5, then make it
cid:md5:NNNNNNNNNNNNN@w3.org, for example.
