Ibve often used nearby content to generate IDs (e.g. a section title
for the id of a setion); then in XSLT you can use a key to make sure
it's going to be unique (e.g. if there are duplicate section titles)
and in XQuery with a little care the key() will be done natively by the
database index so that should be fast too.

This probably doesnbt work so well if you are giving every element an
ID though.
