Erkin, the whole idea of the permanent ID is for it to always point to the
same "conceptual" object. If I create a road, and use an ID for that road
somewhere, I would like that ID to continue working even if the road gets
broken up into multiple segments.  I am not exactly sure how your approach
would solve that.
