Well, we have a two-headed approach ATM, since we support both types of 
URIs. Numeric IDs are managed by the repository, while the "pretty" 
URIs are managed by the navigation tree (i.e. by the user/editor).

I must honestly say that the remarks I found in this thread remind me a 
lot about the decisions we made for Daisy. We are using a different 
storage layer, but other than that I think we address a lot of the 
listed "requirements".
