    OK, I see.

    You said (on July-31):
    "Just to avoid namespace collisions, can we at least put the owner
    somewhere standardized, e.g. <2011.0729.id1@rdunlap>, <33999@google> and
    so on?"

    I read that as 2 different patches & 2 different IDs, but this more
    recent line:
    > Internal-reference-ID: <2011.0729.id1@rdunlap> <33999@google>

    would be for one patch with multiple IDs.

    I think that Mike was just giving 2 examples (for 2 patches). His proposal
    was simply for:
    Internal-reference-ID: <arbitrarytextforid@owner>

    which matches your request fairly well AFAICT.

    But if we are changing things, I think I prefer your other suggestion
    for the ID tag: "Patch-ID". I like it because it's shorter and
    easier to type. :)
