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.
