Overview

An Identifier is the information that can be use to differentiate concepts. If an identifier differentiates individuals of all types it is “Global”. If an identifier differentiates individuals of one type, within a specific subset of that type, it is “Local”.

Local identifiers have a namespace, a string that preceeds the variable portion of the identifier.

Note this definition is presently very narrow, and that an identifier can in practice be used for a lot more than differentiation (i.e. it can often be resolved etc.).

!! Identifiers should always be created in the context of the the object they identify, see spec/lib/identifier_spec.rb for examples !!

See `build_cached_numeric_identifier`.
   This does account for identifiers like:
     123,123
     123,123.12
     123.12
     .12
   This does not account for identifiers like (though this could be hacked in if it becomes necessary by ordering alphanumerics into decimal additions to the float):
     123,123a
     123a
     123.123a
