It just needs to be unique. This is used for syncing one system with another, a feature that isn't quite prime time yet. The goal is to eventually be able to keep several computers, phones, and tablets in sync regardless of where you made a change.

I can't depend on names, aisle locations, etc, because they can change and the ID number helps me track what kind of modification you made to the database.
