This is no major issue with MIDI, all current plugin APIs I know of 
require that every single plugin has a unqique ID. This must be 
managed somehow, and it must work for everyone that wants to use the 

It is possible to set up a system where by IDs can be created by individuals
without a centralized registry.  One can simply allocate a 128-bit GUID as
is done for COM objects on Windows.  GUIDs are generated by an algorithm
which is unique across space and time.
