Um, no, that's one of the cases where the IDs change.  We
actually depend on *Frame* to remember them, as the Unique
tags you see throughout the MIF, which contain the ObjectIDs.
When you recreate a document, Frame uses fresh ones, though
if the same doc is recreated from the same template doc,
they may very well turn out to be the same.

Good!  That last step is critical.  If you are generating
the filename markers, you can indeed prevent duplicates.
The problem is when people create the names themselves; it
just isn't possible to remember all the ones you have used
already without any errors.  It takes a computer to do that.  ;-)
