Yes, I'd like to keep some kind of a personal archive, which includes, for instance, how many colonies I have had in the past. Also, it seems to be easier to maintain many ''things'' when they are numbered.

Yeah, I also do it so that if I find out later that something was ID'd wrong, no organization or categorization changes, just names.
