People don't commmonly publishing anything like a UID when they
publish data on the web.
There's been discussion before about requiring and/or synthesizing
UIDs, but there's hasn't been much come out of those discussions.
The closest thing to a UID that people publish is a HTTP URL
permalink for the event description. If you just add a class name of
'uid' to that hyper link, it will all work.
