One of the things to be aware of for both the mouse and fugu (potential)
servers is that the "clone" coordinate system will be non-existant or
useless as between assemblies we will be throwing away all our
identifiers. This means that effectively the "most stable unit" is the
chromosome coordinates.

As organsims enter a finishing phase with asynchronous updates around
finishing units so the more "clone leve" (or rather "finishing unit
level") identifier system becomes useful.
