In Form Entry schemas and InfoPath XSNs we reference concepts through the format:
There are a few affected methods in Form Entry that hard code this nomenclature, and they can be changed to reflect a new format utilizing UUIDs:
However, changing the schema in this way will cause serious ramifications in the XSL files included in the XSN, since forms quite often reference concepts by the former naming scheme. It should not change references to actual schema elements, but any hard coded answers or selections have to be migrated to the new format.
Also, we need to look into how the taskpane concept page adds data about a selected concept into the XML of the form. I believe the only time it constructs one of these tuples is when selecting a problem (for problem added or problem removed questions).
Changing to this new form of referencing concepts via UUID instead of local ID will allow us to use Sync Module and Metadata Sharing Module.
