IIRC you can add a <fb:on-bind> on the same level as <fb:on-insert> 
where you add the logic for id generation via <fb:javascript>. This 
means <fb:on-insert-row> only adds the nodes, while <fb:on-bind> sets 
the values. form2_bind_xml.xml seems to prove my recall:

   <fb:repeater id="contacts">
       <!-- executed on updates AND right after the insert -->
       <fb:value id="phone"     path="phone/@nr" />
 >>> mapping for phone/@nr ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

         <contact id="" row-state="new">
           <firstname/><lastname/><phone nr=""/><email/>
 >>> empty phone/@nr >>>>>>>>>>>>>^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
