Re: question about generate-id()
IMHO the definition (English) is wrong.
I don't understand what you mean by "wrong". I think you mean simply that the function as specified doesn't meet your requirements. That might mean the function is useless to you, but it doesn't make it wrong. You could just as well say that it is wrong because it doesn't make your toast in the morning. Judging by the extent to which the function is used, it seems to meet plenty of other requirements, and as I showed in my post, it can also be used as a primitive to underpin a more sophisticated function that meets your requirements too.
