Yes, but I have my own unique IDs where I need them, and I do the
    id: myId
before I do
    passenger: ...

Would it make sense in this case for #passenger to check pre-existing #id, 
and call a new method like:

storePassenger: anObject at: anId
    (callbacks includesKey: anId) ifTrue: [self error].
    callbacks at: anId put: anObject
    ^ anId

It seems that might work, though I usually prefer not to do too much such

I would if this was for CSS styling, but it is for direct Ajax editing of 
specific elements among multiple similar css-classed ones.
