I would anticipate that means that the assignments are repeatable on a
reload of the application. Certainly I've tried to reassign the same
subaddress value, as I find it frustrating in Viewer when a new node
appears beside the old one, but with a different subaddress on it.

If I were coding by UID, and it changed dynamically on me, I'd have to
add further complexity to the app to track source address/UID changes
I think.

My mail monitoring xAPplication has fixed/user-configurable
assignments for mailboxes. I need to update the SlimServerConnector to
make the Slim device subaddress value static once assigned and also

Unfortunately I've not got to the point of allocating subaddresses on
anything other than a pre-defined basis.
