Yes, this is what I meant.

I had missed this requirement. And with this one in mind, I think your 
solution is indeed pretty easy and works.

And by the way, in case you had not checked, it is compatible with the 
original RFC2445.

"The identifier is RECOMMENDED to be the identical syntax to the [RFC 
822] addr-spec." something like 19960401T080045Z-4000F192713-0052 at host1.com.

It is a RECOMMEND, not a MUST, and given the circumstances, I think 
permalink makes much more sense than a unique generated dummy address.
