Now we can assume that solution to non-unique identification Volker
explained in acceptable equivalent of random identifiers so KEXI does not

I understand ​KEXI​ has time until the next release to switch

compliant and would store data within KDE infra. For 3.1.x we can stop
saving unique random identifiers.
