Exactly, and then it sucks to open a dialog the user doesn't understand.

That's not what I understand as "passive". Passive means that no user action 
is required at all, i.e. no dialog.

That has nothing to do with working sets. The "Code" refers to a toolview

Ok, I understand that. But assigning random letters instead won't help much, 
will it?
Configurable letters and numbers might help, but then you need a UI to 
configure them. Suggestions are welcome, but opening a dialog when the set is 
created is out of question.
