I suppose that you mean on a document at http://microformats.org/wiki/ 
hcalendar-examples , we'd see:

<div class="vevent" id ="someid">


If so, then, yes we could potentially use that. However, it would be  
nice to be able to declare that the same event or contact info is the  
same, across separate web resources. Eventful already does this with  
their venues.

Each event page has an hcard for the venue, each of these hcards has  
a UID property which is the permalink url for than venue on  
eventful.com. Seems pretty easy and works.
