The "id" is maintained in 2 places: the container (to access
the respective child) and the object itself (used for URL construction).
When you rename an object, the id is changed in both places.
However, mounting is not considered to change the mounted object.
Therefore, it does not change the id. More importantly, mounting
is at a much lower level (the ZODB) than the application which
knows about ids (Zope). In principle, you can mount objects that
do not have an "id" and if it has an id, it might be set in
different ways not known be the mounting code.
Thus, when you mount Zope objects, you have to observe the
restriction (or get wrongly constructed urls).
