I understand your concerns about auto generated id. However, once it is auto
generated why we don't save it to meta data and reuse that auto generated id
instead of generating new one. In this way we can be sure that it is unique
since it is generated randomly once and we can refer to that node with that
id for subsequent restarts.

Node name can be set by setting
name setting, id is always auto
generated (its highly important to make sure its unique). It can be allowed
to be set, but I wonder if a different way to try and attack this is not
better, for example, I have been thinking that node level APIs should allow
to specify the name (or even IP address) for example.

Currently node id and name change at each restart. Is it possible to store
them (at least id) and reuse that node id? We are planning to monitor ES
cluster, nodes, indices and etc. However, since node id change every time it
is restarted, it is not possible to track a node.
