Hi, Marlon -

As a TC, we've already discussed the question of deterministic,
hash-based object ids at great length. I agree with you that this
would be extremely useful for a great many use cases. Unfortunately,
after lengthy discussion, we reached consensus as a TC that for a
variety of technical reasons, implementing deterministic object
identifiers is not practical.

Please forgive the terseness of my response; I simply lack the
bandwidth at present to go back through all the historical discussion
and summarize it here. Suffice to say that had we been able to
overcome the technical challenges identified at the time, I would be
the #1 cheerleader for deterministic, hash-based identifiers.
