Maybe I don't understand well something -- why don't you use generate-id|()?

I was thinking that I needed an id which encoded the node's position within the source document. It turns out that any kind of random or non-random id is fine as long as it is guaranteed to be unique within a document. I can use the document order to imply sequentiality.

Thanks very much for the assistance.
