ContainerKey identifies the file used for the container.  This is stable 
for a given container, but note that there are table operations (e.g, 
offline compress) which will create a new container for the table and 
drop the old one.

PageKey is basically the page number counting from the start of the 
file.  Per definition this should be stable.
