> On today's Teleconference the ID primitive was briefly discussed.  Karl Seiler recommended that we look at what data should be encompassed in a POI's idea. Does it encompass geodata? Other Data? Surely there is something better than a 64bit number.
> While I dont have a solution I do have a few thoughts.
> With the assumption that the ID is permanent, can it include info that is not permanent? For example if there is a POI for a Circus and we include Geodata in the ID does that imply that circus can not move? If as discussed a POI has a relative location how is that capture?
> Is there a decent permanent piece of information that can be added to the ID? Or is location fine except for the edge cases above?
