Indeed, that is what I said. We need to rely on the unique name. This is provided by
mooseName. For all named entities this is unique within the entities of the same type.
Thus, the unique name is not guaranteed to be unique within the whole model, but it is
unique within the entities of the same type.
This is enough for our purpose given that we know the type of the entity that we need to
Does this make sense?

If I have a model "model1" mse or database it will have internal names/id
then I have a delta or even another model
and loading it I will need to do a mapping between in memory objects of the model 1
So you propose to remove all the entities related to entities in Model2 from model1 and
to load load model2
but to do so you need to know that id:xxx in Model2 corresponds to Class A in Model
My impression is that we should really have a uniqueName for any entity.
