The Position ID wasn't inventet for humans to read, but rather to easily
exchange positions via email. The position ID is about the most compact
way to represent a position.

The hyphen (or any separator) between a position ID and match ID
actually allows for some extra saving by allowing us to skip trailing
A's in the position ID (if we want to do so).

Other forwards for recording positions do exist, but many are not
suitable for adding in text or html exports.
