PIDs in the core-service[edit]

Beside the formerly discussed limitations of checking the uniqueness only locally exists PID consturcts witch stay in conflict with this approach.

The infrastructure could not have all information to distinguish if a PID is an invalid dublicate or a valid. A Handle can carry multiple location of a resource and also qualifiy them. A valid (and feasible) Handle could aggregate all documents to a certain topic. Handle -> URL 1..URL n

Assume we have two Items escidoc:1 and escidoc:2. escidoc:2 has the same content of escidoc:1 but only in another language (escidoc:2 is_translation_of escidoc:1). Then would it be a valid, that escidoc:1 and escidoc:2 are tagged with the same PID.
