Hello Jurgen,

You are right that this is important mostly for instance data prepared 
as a design/implementation activity; while not relevant for data coming 
from the node.
I will add it.

However in the first case it is vital!

For config files, and also for file documenting server capabilities we 
have had MANY problems with people changing the key values/identities of 
list entries.
They think it is a nice idea to provide better, more meaningful key 
values; however the NMS designers use these key values to detect 
changes; also during an upgrade process if a default configuration file 
is loaded again with slightly changed key values, then e.g. access 
control rules become duplicated.

regards Balazs
