Proposal 63: add Type to Id
Date: Fri, 2 Apr 2004 14:55:15 –0500
(Proposed by Scott Thorne)

Add Type information to Ids.
Add these methods to IdManager:

IdIterator getIdsByType(Type idType)
TypeIterator getIdTypes()

Change createId method to take a Type parameter:

createId(Type idType)

    Comment (4/7/04 Dave Haines)
    Do Ids have types or do the things they identify have Types?
    How would the Type of an Id Type be used differently than
    the Type of what it identifies? Could someone provide an
    example of when this would be necessary?
