You may want to look at the approach jCAM is taking to this using UID

The advantage of doing this in the <ContentReference> section of your
CAM template is that instead of the on-the-wire XML instances all having
to carry this baggage - they are all neatly in the CAM template instead
- that can be referenced off-line as needed.

See http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/cam for more details, tutorial
and open source links.
