ChangeListManagerGate question

I see this interface has been introduced in 8890, and it seems to allow VCS plugins whose VCS handle change lists to better integrate with IDEA, which is good.

I have a question though, I'm not sure how it is for other VCSs, but for MKS, the change list "identifier" is not the user presented name, but the "id" of hte change list. THe id never changes whereas the name may be modified by the user. So the list id should be used for lookup, and not the user presented name.

Does jetbrains have a recommendation for handling this ?
Up to now, i used the MKS change list name as the IDEA change list name, and just appended the id using the decorateChangeList method.
