Subject: RE: [regrep-cc-review] Issue #1: Unique Identifiers

I'm wondering about the situations where Core Component work is provided to a registry after the developers have been tracking CC IDs without taking into account the potential registry UUIDs.  The developers will want to retain the CC IDs they are familiar with during their development work.

Thinking that through some more I'm not sure that precludes the mapping defining the UUID as the CC's ID.  The developers could still map their internal CC ID to an ExternalIdentifier class.  In practicality it would be a situational mapping. If the development took the registry into account in assigning their CC IDs, then the UUID is likely going to be treated as the ID within the community anyways.  If the developers used their own ID scheme for the CCs, then the that ID gets relegated to the ExternalIdentifier but the UUID still stands as the CC's ID.

Or would that be too confusing and we should just request that all developer CC IDs be mapped to ExternalIdentifier?
