I've thought about that as well, but we need to be careful when we want
to use the contract hash as UUID, because then we need to do the signing
a bit differently.  Should we allow this?

Hmm I can see what your concern is, but what we want to do here (and in
may other parts of the protocol) depends largely on whether we want to
support session state in the first place or not.

So we should reach consensus on that first ...

Keep in mind though that the fulfillment page


can only query whether the contract with this exact fulfillment URL has
already been purchased or not, so the interrogation is rather limited.
