Yes, I also thought certainly this must have been discussed before. I did try searching the list, but I think the relevant search terms are too common, short ("ID", etc.) and/or too close to unrelated things (i.e. CUSTOM_ID when I am looking for "custom ID", etc.) to produce any good results. Or maybe my search-fu is just bad. > although i undersatnd the whole thing as readable id's. dunno if that > is the prupose. Essentially, yes, more readable.

The uniqueness I outlined in OP (down to minute) is plenty enough for my use-case. The /last/ thing I want to do is to go the other way, and make the ID even longer! I do appreciate all the replies so far. However as I plan on relying on this to implement some quite critical functionality for a package I am working on (a sort of Zettelkasten / TiddlyWiki in Orgmode if you will) I would feel a lot more comfortable with some additional reassurences that what I am planning is not some crazy or bad idea. Thanks, TRS-80
