Enhancement request: Unique file or directory id

I work for an organisation which likes to rename projects and products all
the time especially in mid life. Its also very common that a subproject is
moved to another major version.
I like to keep documentation like requirements, design and test documents in
the repository alongside the source code and copies of released build's.
So if I publish a link to a requirements document, this gets signed off but
the implementation of the project then gets postponed to a later release, I
break the link to the old document if I rename the path to the new name.
I would like a unique number to be attached to any file or directory in the
repository so that I can reference the item either using the current way or
using the shorthand with the UID.
When an item is branched/copied the new branch/copy should get a new number.
When renamed the the number should be retained.
