The register is based on four main hydrographic units with three level subdivisions, based mainly on river basins and mountain regions. See the english abstract that follows the table of contents. It should be discussed in advance, if the national speleo associations will permit using data from the cave indexes or even if they have an interest in sharing specific information with OSM. 

interesting reading. 

Apparently such ids are already used in OSM (https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1049851511).
Don't think such a short numeric id can be copyrighted in any way but of course copying data 
from copyrighted sources requires permission and licence compatibility.
