Given that overlays won't do proper assignment, the numbers they choose

I think it would be cleanest to leave the hacks in the overlay, and set
the desired ID to either 999 or a random number like floppym suggested.
The meaning of RANDOM is even more clear than "-1", and doesn't require
us to add both the code that's dead-on-arrival and the CI check to
ensure that it stays that way. But you're the one who's maintaining it
now so I won't argue.
I suppose setting it to 999 would also serve the purpose. Jaco, do you
999 I think is probably as good a reserved "don't care" number as any,
since really the first dynamic allocation will already use that.
